The butts on these 'well diggers' look anything but cold as they pull the old pump out of the old well.
Tuesday night ended with this spectacular sight, as the well rigs about looked as big as the house, a comment Maryann made which quite literally may have held water! The following morning, at 'well diggers' hours....10:15AM....the crew showed up and the digging commenced. Actually, for all intents and purposes, they sunk the first 20 feet Tuesday night....getting warmed up for the real deal....
Cherokee is pretty darned happy about it as well!
Yes! The sight I have yearned for!! Water!!!
All said, it went ....well. We are now indulging in pleasurable water. 98 feet set us right into a nice gravel bed, which is a natural filter in effect. Before we started we were at 14 ppm of iron in our water. That is 14 parts per million for those who count! Now, we sit at a pretty .04 ppm, over half less than 1 part per million...as illustrated below with the test tubes.
We will still use the softener because the water although pure as sunshine is a little hard. Our bodies have adapted to softer water throughout the scourge of nasty water here at the compound.
To end this story I will say this. For as long as I can remember, the first thing I do in the morning is splash cold ass water on my face....it is invigorating to me. It gets the blood flowing...instantly... and brings life to the pores and the morning soul. Great way to start a day. For the past three years, due to the absolute lack of descent water and the foul smell that has come out of any of the faucets, I have not had the desire to splash that cold life onto my face in the mornings. For three years I have not. Sucks! But today, once again I pour life unto my head.....a baptism of sort...as I once again begin each day with frigid delight, and confidence!
