Black and White Tuesday
May 10, 2016
we decided to catch all our rainwater
as we were used to doing on the farm.
This did not go down well with the builders.
What we did not notice at them time was that
the down-pipes were going through
the concrete verandah.
About every 18 months the ground moves enough
to crack and creates a leak in the system.
I have known for a while there there was a leak somewhere.
Sunday was the day I discovered where it was.
Unluckily it was not a break in a straight piece of pipe…to easy to fix.
It was the elbow buried in the concrete.
I had just purchased bits and pieces needed to fix this,
arrived home, and after months of praying for rain
from our south, west or east, and not getting any,
we have received rain which has come
across country from the Indian Ocean.
For an hour and a half we received steady rain this morning
and you can see water gushing out the crack in the concrete.
More rain is forecast and the barometer
is so low it is nearly on the floor.
Life wasn’t meant to be easy. 😀
