It finally happened.
Mother Nature got the upper hand on my well.
The well did me proud.
She stayed pumping out the water throughout the long, hot, dry, dry, dry summer.
Did I mention dry?
But, the fall rains never came.
It's December and not so much as a snowflake to be seen.
My well just couldn't take it anyway.
She fell victim to chronic dryness last eve about 11 o'clock.
There is no large amounts of precip. in the foreseeable future.
I have no idea if or when she will ever fill back up.
Next course of action to is make some calls.
Hook up to rural water or maybe have water hauled and dumped in the well.
Or, go without water until who knows when.
Yay for chemically treated water!
Yay for paying a monthly water bill!
Yay for borrowing money from my inlaws to get rural water!
And there is the waiting until we can get water hauled or water hooked up.
Is it too much to hope that Jasper County, Iowa get buttloads of rain overnight to fill up my well?
Maybe we should all have a blogosphere rain dance.
But, than it might rain everywhere and not everywhere needs it.
Send rain requests to Mother Nature?
I don't know.
I am out of ideas.
