Thank Goodness we have our power back but the public water is still down. We pray for those without power or without water. Praise to all the power workers who keep the grid up and running! Thanks especially to those who take care of us here "at the end of the wires."
We have no generator whether biodiesel, gas or propane but something tells me that is going to change. That $50,000 wind generator and battery setup hooked to the grid just wasn't feasible for us.
I have heard rumors that our aquifer near Bainbridge is low and the county water system is having problems with it. I did hear that three different wells had problems. If anyone knows more about this, I would like to hear about it. I know if Uncle Roy was still in charge of the Division of Water at ODNR, I could get answers!
Writing will be slow this week so maybe we will be back in full force by Thursday. I am not good at texting on the Xyboard but at least I can put up a little post and come back to it like I am right now.
The drought has changed everything for farmers with corn up over a dollar and changed for the eastern half of the US when those winds hit Friday evening.
Have a great week everyone and here's hoping for rain for all of us! That is unless you live where there is too much like we had here last year.
