My power pole that used to supply service to my old house and now just supplies electric to my water well pump, rotted off at the ground and broke off. I called the electric company and they came and shut the power off to it. I told them that meant that I wouldn't have any water. They insisted and said it was for safety reasons. They cut the wires, rolled them up, and placed them at the top of a tall electric pole way out of my reach.
The only way that I can get water again is to run a wire from my other pole that services my home, to the pump. That means going to the store tomorrow to buy another breaker and 150 feet or more of heavy wire to get the 220 volt service to my pump. My son loaded his big generator in the frontend loader of his tractor and brought it up. He hooked it up to the pump but the pump started running but was just making a funny noise and didn't pump any water. I suppose that it needed primed but that takes a lot more water than I have on hand and I only want to put clean water into my well. I hope we can come up with some kind of solution tomorrow. Heck, I didn't want a shower tonight anyway. . . Now, you all take a big drink of water for me and have a great day, you hear?
