Well Then There Now

We were awash in rain yesterday. Water everywhere. Frogs happy. Alligators happy. Thirsty earth and growing things happy. Clog-wife and I unhappy because the well pump broke and the motor burned up so we’re without potable water in the Clog Almanac household. Praise the Holy Blessed Rainwater caught in a stockpot to flush with.

The whole matter has brought up severely unpleasant memories of going 6 days without water or electricity during one of the hurricanes during the heat of last summer, then a few days more of the same in the aftermath of another hurricane a couple of weeks later.

Skies have cleared for a few days and the pump should be replaced by day’s end.
