After the rain...

The well driller called on Sunday afternoon to report that he had finished the well and at nearly 200 feet, he was getting a return of approximately 2.25 gallons/minute of water. There is still a bit of work to be done to make it ready to use: put in a pump, connect pipes to the house, etc, but we've made excellent progress! We also need to send a sample for testing so that we know it is safe to drink, but I am already looking forward to have clear, cold, nice tasting well water again! The only down side is that we will have to put the girls on daily Fluoride tabs...that's definitely a small price to pay!

We had quite a lot of rain here Friday night and Saturday. So much that it sent my Dad home early without a deer for the 3rd Fall in a row. I think he is planning to come back for rifle season in Dec. In the meantime, the concrete forms that had already been placed on the footing got flooded, and some of them washed out. I guess the crew will have to do some repair today before they can move on.
