Let's begin at the beginning shall we? For quite a while I've been saying that I think we have a leak somewhere because the water bill seems kinda high. Now our irrigation is done from our well but the house water comes from the Public Utility District Hereby known as the PUD. If you call the PUD and ask for assistance finding a leak they laugh in your face and really how do you find a leak on acreage? Let me tell you.
|Yep, we're sunk all right!|
Ric said, "While I'm sunk I might just as well cut down that tree, then we'll see about winching out my truck." And that's what we did. I hauled a cord of fire wood from the wood shed to fill the hole to give purchase to the tires while the men winched the truck out and then I hauled a cord of muddy fire wood out of the hole so my husband could dig down and find the broken pipe. A real good time was had by all. (No sarcasm here, no sirree!)
I think you can see just how close this is to my hen house and not a branch even grazed it! Amazing, really.
Sadly my rose garden and lily pond are under all that debris and several tons of tree. I don't know what will be left once we get this cleaned up. Ric did a damn fine job of felling that tree. It had to be done before it fell on it's own and hurt someone and we'll get at least a cord and a half of firewood out of it.
P.S. The water bill has been reduced significantly.
Until next time,
