Running water has been restored to my world. I am squeaky clean and happy! The water was back on the same day I wrote my last post. To answer a few of the comments............ when the water is off, it is off in the entire park, so getting water from another building is off the table. The good news is that that handy-dandy valve that separates the living quarters from the rest of the park has been installed.
We have a deep well on the property that services the park. We even have a fire hydrant! The whole system enters a pump room in the main building. The main building houses the living quarters, the store, the laundry and two shower/bathrooms. When we have a leak in the park the pump will come on and go off way too often. It is fairly loud and is something that I listen for. In the past when I shut down the water, I would kill the power to the pump. This shut down the whole park...... including the main building. That has now been solved with that handy-dandy valve!!! I know, I know. You are all wondering what took so long for love of my life to install it. Me, too. He is the ultimate procrastinator and prefers to do these things under as much pressure as possible. Drives me crazy, but after 35 years, what can you do?
The weather is affecting my arthritis. Mainly my thumbs and one finger making it hard to type. Well, I don't know that you would call what I do typing, but I have been in a good amount of pain lately and the wrong movement will remind me to stop what I am doing. So I am mostly reading lately and catching up on things around the house. Supposed to be in the 50's tomorrow and raining. Even the firewood under shelter is so damp it doesn't want to burn.............. But I have water. Hot and cold running water. Life is good. Watching the news coverage of the earthquake is enough to make all of thankful for what we have. Yes, my life is very good.
