Water!

We hired a local drilling company to drill our water well and our HVAC wells. Overall, we were very happy with their work!

The drilling rig and pipe truck.

Drilling (The gray sludge is silt)

River of sludge (yuck!)

When he was done drilling the well he took the cap off causing the built up pressure to release creating a geyser.

The water pressure was amazing!

Sunshine!

Telephone poles and a lovely sunset on the way home
