Water, Water Everywhere

And not a drop to drink!

Water!! Can't live without it. It's one of those major necessities of life and I knew that it was just a matter of time before I would be without.

So here is the story. Dennis wakes up at 4am Wednesday and as the unusual routine, heads for the shower. He turns the water on, lathers up and low and behold, NO WATER!!
I am without water for 2 day because the pump that pumps the water out of the ground is froze up.

Now don't get me wrong, I was prepared, I had my water storage I just don't like having to use it. It makes me feel like I am camping in my house.

I finally get an education on well drilling and pump pulling, learned lots.

Water is back on, showers are taken, laundry is done and I am ONE HAPPY CAMPER.

Very nice water photos! I especially like the bottom one with the blue bucket and sloshing of the water within.

Oooh! How I feel for you. I have a story that could be told, but it is too long for this venue. Just suffice it to say, I've lived on farms where we had the well run dry. Had to pack water in and ration its use. Had to wash clothes by hand (with a child in old style diapers and a husband in Jeans). Learned a lot about having to do what one has to do in situations like that. Glad your water is back up and running.

Nice shots to go with your story.
