>When the Well Runs Dry…

>literally. Yep, the Beans experienced their first dry day due to a dry well yesterday. We couldn’t figure out what was happening. For some folks, running out of water is probably old hat. For us, though, we have a large well under our garden that keeps us floating and happy. But not on Sunday. Sunday morning we ran out of water. The pump was working (culprit last time we experienced challenges). The upper tanks didn’t have any problems. We had no idea what was wrong. And, in the tradition of every single thing that goes wrong around the house, it happened moments before El 3atal left town…

So, we called our friendly haaris (building guard) and he called a company to come and deliver some water. That was enough to hold us (without doing any washing that is) until the water came in today. And today, we had a trickle not a flood. So, my oh my, still a problem. The handy haaris checked it out and discovered that the floater (just like the ones in the toilet tanks only bigger was stuck. He removed it and in came our flood…

Ahhh, the joys of having water once again in this parched region… Makes you appreciate anew the beauty of conservation…

Happy drought!
