For years and years, the water supply to my house has been pumped from a well at my in-law’s next door. Today is the day my house grew up, because it is going to have a well of its very own.
I am taking the plunge (no pun intended) and drilling a well at my house and will no longer rely on the well at my in-law’s. By the time the water reached my house from their well, the pressure was almost non-existent. I have limped along without water pressure for years and I am finally doing something that should have been done 30+ years ago! 🙂
For those of you who live in a city, you probably have never thought about how a house in the country receives their water. We have running water too, but a well has to be drilled sometimes 140 feet or more into the ground so it can be pumped out; filtered; and piped into the house. Health conscious individuals periodically have water samples tested to verify no impurities lurk within the cool, clear water.
And…oh yeah, the 2017 Solar Eclipse is also today! Are you ready? The view will be the best for those in the “path of totality” which crosses these 12 states: Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. My home is in Kentucky, so I am in the path and ready for the big event!
The celestial show in Kentucky starts at 11:54 a.m. CT and will reach totality at 1:25 p.m. CT. I will be watching the sky with my eclipse glasses on; however, I will be more excited to watch these guys drill a “much needed” well.
No doubt, I am more excited to have my own well (and water pressure) than I am to see a “once-in-a-lifetime” sighting of a total solar eclipse. But, everyone has their priorities, right?
If you are one of those fortune individuals who will be able to see the total solar eclipse, please make sure you have ISO certified eclipse glasses and be sure to enjoy a “Sun” Drop and a “Moon” pie, while you view the spectacular show in the sky. Later!
