We need rain. A thunderstorm passed through last evening but didn't give up much rain. It's been very hot and dry. A friend and I have a garden we're trying to keep going so we were watering every day. Then there's another area with decorative plants that we're trying to keep going. Between watering the veggies and flowers (flowers with a sprinkler) my well went dry. Luckily all I had to do was cut the circuit breaker and wait about 30 minutes. I had water again. We're being more careful and I'm not watering outside. Glad it's only me in the house. If the house were full we probably would have had to go to extreme water saving. It's amazing how complacent one can get when it comes to what one considers a never-ending supply of something. There's always an end but, if one is careful, it will take a very long time. I certainly don't want to have to have another well drilled.
