Do you take water for granted?
What would happen if it was dirty?
Well, we've been dealing with that today. 106 degrees and we have no clean water. :( Thankfully I had a gallon of water left over from an event where I had to make coffee off site! And that's what I've been drinking. We took showers in water that is a little muddy but a lot better than no shower at all!
After the plumber came out and charged $65 for a 3 minute service call to tell us he couldn't do anything but we'd have to pull the well and cut the bottom off, the case had probably caved a bit at the bottom. . . I called a neighbor to ask if he knew anyone who pulled wells and he said he'd help J do it (J has no plumbing experience at all and didn't have a clue what to do)! Sweet! So, J came home early from work and they got busy. C suggested we let it settle for several hours before using it to make sure it's good. . . A big giant huge thanks to our awesome neighbor C for helping John work on our water well! We will hopefully have clean water again tomorrow.
