Never mind. We will be having another winter storm. The diagnosis vary of course, but one suggests there could be up to a foot of snow along the susceptible Tennessee border locations. That would include me. There wasn't enough time to get to a full melt and the temperature has already dropped below meltage.
The clouds have descended to hide the storm as it sneaks in during the night.
Poor little snowdrops, you are about to be buried alive once again.
It has been nice having you around for a few days. See you when you get back.
I may have to shovel the driveway again so the resident gardeners can get in and I can get out.
Nice that the driveway was clear today. Those tire tracks on the left hand side are from the big truck that came today and put a new pump 260 feet down into the well. I replaced everything that could be replaced, cleaned everything that could be cleaned and the water still flowed intermittently. All that was left to be broken was the well pump. And yes it was. I think winter killed it and the pressure tank.
After a little lesson in winter water maintenance, the resident gardeners should be good to go and won't suffer the aggravation I have for the last two months. Oy!
