Well, Well, Well August 26, 2014

$1,300ish. That’s what it cost me.

But it was fixed the day of my last post.

They weren’t supposed to show up until Thursday, but when I got home from work Wednesday afternoon, they were finishing up.

Turns out the well was in that corner, just not under the slate. They put the new tall wellhead right at the edge of the driveway.

The good news is that they didn’t have to dig up my driveway at all.

The bad news is that the wellhead now exists on a corner I regularly drove over to back out of my driveway. There will be a learning curve.

There will need to be some clear marking of the wellhead so the plow doesn’t take it out this winter. The corner is one the plow also regularly cuts.

Tim and I may have to switch places in the garage. We park the longer car in the tighter spot so that our batteries are side by side. If we switch places, we need much longer jumper cables. Or a portable battery booster.

So there will be more money involved.

But we have water. (I love water!) We know where the well is. The problem was fixed about 30 hours after I called.

I think that’s pretty good.

Water is good.
Water problems that are fixed quickly, and solve a mystery, are also pretty good.
Indigo writing? Bloody marvellous.

If you can back the cars in on the opposite sides, then the batteries will still be side by side and you won’t have to turn to back out the driveway…just drive full speed ahead!!!
