We have a leak! While mowing the yard I noticed standing water around our well head. Here in the country we have our own water well nothing is supplied by a city service. Hubby happened to be home so I quit mowing and had him come out and look. Sure enough we have a leak.
The boys were out riding the RZR and popping wheelies, all of a sudden I heard a crash and ran out to see. Two boys were laying in the grass and they’d crashed into the well. I phoned hubby when it happened and he said not to run any water until he came home to inspect the situation. At that time he could find nothing wrong but assumed something had shifted and only time would reveal the leak. Well that time is now there’s definitely damage done.
I had just been out spraying for weeds 2 days prior to finding the leak so it hadn’t been doing it for long. Hubby thought he was going to have a relaxing weekend but that didn’t happen he had to dig it up and replace what was broken. I had just said to hubby a few days before that the well head was ugly and I needed to find a way to cover it up. I’m glad I hadn’t started on that project only to have it all moved. This is making me think maybe I should just leave it alone and deal with it’s ugliness.
Here I was the stupid mom out photographing the boys, I know it’s dangerous the way they ride but they are adults and I can’t keep my thumb on them all their lives. You know that saying “boys will be boys” well it’s true they think up the darndest things. Even though they crashed, and thankfully no one was hurt, they thought it was a great time and laughed all the while. Just another day around our cabin…..
