Last night the power was going to be shut down because of a high wind event. I’d forgotten that and put a chicken in the pressure cooker just about the time it was to go off so I could only hope to get that chicken done.
I was watching the timer and with one minute to go the power went off. Good enough to get it cooked.
So we’ll be without power for a couple days until they get it back on after they check all the big power lines which takes some time.
Working on spring pipe road crossings
So today I hopped on my quad runner and went back up into the hills to work on the spring pipe road crossing improvements I’m doing.
I decided to leave all the plastic pipe hookups until after I get all the steel pipes in the ground.
So the first thing I did was move the dozer to the next crossing down this road.
First crossing today
After doing the first one I knew how to do a better job at it so this was the first one.
I did two more before it was getting late in the day and I quit and went home, after 5. That leaves two more crossings to do tomorrow.
Getting the generator started
My brother and I share a generator so when I got home he was there gassing it and I helped him get it started as sometimes it’s a pain. It took a few tries and then it was going. Noisy thing but if one wants power that’s the way it is.
So that was my day. I got some work done and had a nice day in the forest being productive.
I thought I remember a while back you had a well put in near your house
I know free is always good but I was just curious do you not use it
The springs are on some Family property that we may someday loose so that’s why I put in the well. Just for backup. I much prefer the spring water to use as the springs are just cleaner as the water comes out of the hills.
