Well Progress

10 Feb

Last night after I got home from work and finished chores, I decided I just had to get the insulation back on the room of the well house.  I peeled the tarp from the back to the front and put the bats of insulation back in.  Then I just stapled my tarp back over it.  I might have to put some new insulation in by the time we get around to putting a real roof back on it, but this will work for now.  As you can see we’ve had quite a bit of snow, but I’ll talk more about that in another post.

My nephew came today and replaced the valve that I picked up earlier in the week.

Then we turned on the electricity to the well and tried the hydrant.  Well, at least it’s water.  I will keep running it and hauling it away until it gets clear and stays clear.

I might have made a bit of a lake (ice skating later!) when I was dumping it by the tree.

It’s also pretty dirty in the cattle tank.

That means I’m still hauling rural water for them to drink until it’s cleared up again, but I’m making progress!

I will say, this hauling water for forty-some goats and three llamas every day is making me feel really old.
