New Year...... New Water!!!!
So Vikki couldn't let you know that Bryan got out of his problem okay. In fact it was no problem.... just a bent over alder rammed up under the running board and with the 4' of powder the skidoo needed a little chainsaw help. It was decided on the SBX check at 2 pm in that he'd come back New Years afternoon. Bryan said Ishi and he had a great time for 15 minutes while he played the harmonica and Ishi howled, yipped and yodeled alone with him. Vikki spent New Years Eve oil painting by Coleman Lamp listening to the radio. At 7pm she talked to Bryan on the SBX for a minute... really poor signals.
Bryan got back yesterday at 2 pm and said "Before I take off my heavy cloths lets do the well cleanup". We try to do it twice a year. It was only -2 C so the perfect day. It requires brushing down the sides of the well with a corn broom, stirring up the bottom of the well with a heavy stick. Putting the Honda water pump into the crawl space, hooking up the suction hose into the well, laying the 3"
This morning Bryan tackled the water pump.
Something was jammed in the foot valve. It would loss its pressure back down the well. So today that foot valve was replaced. New running water for the New Year... one of the best of gifts.
