Watery Wednesday: The New Well/She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy

We are all pretty excited around here.  We have clean, clear, pure cold water now.  No more iron stuff to deal with.  Yay!  I can go back to buying white clothing once again, with all the money that we are saving on Stain Bully and Iron-Out. 

Uh, oh!  That new water was coming out fast and furious!  Was it going to flood the A-Frame behind our house?

It could have, but Cary and one of the well guys hopped into the backhoe and skidsteer, and went to work building berms.

Cary at work.  I love to watch him.

I do think his tractor's sexy.

The next day, it was a muddy mess, but the water had sunk in to the ground:

I thought this was cool ... snow falling down while the camera was still on the advanced sports shooting setting.  That is something that I figured out this time around; my camera kept wanting to focus on something before I switched settings, and I had to keep pushing the button four or five times.  After I remembered to do change the setting, I could take the photos as quickly as I wanted too.

I am submitting this post to Watery Wednesday.  Please check out all the other neat pictures that people are posting over there by clicking here, when Wednesday comes!

Too bad that wasn't know you're glad it was water. In Florida the water has a lot of Lyme in it and has a yucky taste. We love to watch heavy machinery too. Have a wonderful day.

My husband would love to have one of those things. He has a tractor that he plows the snow off our driveway and I too love watching him.

I'm thinking Titusville here!! An oil well...too bad this wasn't a gusher of the black gold kind.

Awwwwwwwww, the flooding and muddy mess will just be a distant memory soon. What a chore tho, glad it didn't flood by the quick thinking of your men!!

Goodness, you and the A frame for a while had water front properties. Hope that doesn't affect your taxes:)
Clean water is such a blessing--enjoy your bounty.
