This is the hose coming from our spring. And this is the tree that fell at the base of our spring.
This is the cover over the cistern that holds our spring water to pump up to our house.
The water is at a trickle that might be 2 gallons an hour. The cistern needs to be completely pumped out and cleaned.
This is our current water supply.
These downspouts used to go into a drain in the ground. Michael altered them a little! 🙂
Full containers are a beautiful sight! I’m thankful for the Lord’s provision. We can take baths now.
Every place and container available to catch rain water is in use. We put this water into the 50 and 150 gallon storage containers.
We also have a shallow well that is dropping quickly even with light use of 20 gallons or less a day.
Michael cut the tree by the spring and hopefully will get the cistern pumped out tomorrow. We can also run a couple of miles down the hill to the Elk River and fill storage containers if we need to.
I’ll update as we make progress in the work.
We’re starting to see some fall color in the landscape.
Michael’s hay cutting toys. Oh, yeah. They’re not toys. Right!
My favorite sight. Michael’s truck topping the hill as he returns home!
Well, the milk’s in. Gotta go. Have a great evening. God bless!
