We Have Water -- Wait, No We Don't

If you saw my Project 365 post, you saw that the well company was here to dig our new well. However, in all projects there can be problems, and that was the case with our well.

The family owned/operated well company dug down 100'. They were sure they hit water, so they lowered some sort of pipe-thingy down into the hole, but found no water. While trying to remove the pipe, it somehow broke into several pieces.

Houston, we have a problem.

That meant they couldn't continue drilling there, so they had to start all over and drill a new well. I was getting worried that my yard could end up with so many holes in it that it resembled swiss cheese.

Houston, we have another problem.

The owner of the well company then informed us that a year ago they had scheduled a week long family vacation together, and unfortunately it was to start the next day.

So, there sits all the trucks and other equipment, looking like giant, ugly lawn ornaments and I can't wait for this week to be over so we can finally get this silly thing dug!

 And when it's done, I just may put on my swimsuit and run through a lawn sprinkler to celebrate!
