This isn’t good. No water.
I was going along doing dinner dishes and starting the dishwasher when I heard a breaker pop in the main electrical panel. Nothing unusual for that to happen so I went to see what tripped and it was the well. Huh. So I turned on the faucet in the laundry room sink. No agua. I turned the faucet on in the kitchen. No agua. So I quickly turned off the dishwasher. What was strange was when I flipped the well breaker back on, every light in the laundry flickered for a long time. I didn’t think that was good so I turned the breaker back off and called Interstate Well in Greenwich. (Thanks to a tip from Cobra!). Interstate has a 24/7 answering service. I told them the problem and within two minutes, or less, the head honcho of Interstate called me back and they’ll be here tomorrow morning. Luckily I’ve taken my shower for the month of March so I’m good to go until April. Phew. But I did slightly panic that I’d have no water for making coffee tomorrow. A gal can do without a shower but not coffee!
As if from the gods of heaven, the phone rang with Number One son calling asking if he could stop by for a second to pick up some of his ammo (that he keeps locked up here). Sure, and on your way, can you bring me two large jugs of water? Sure Ma. Sure.
In speaking with the Interstate guy tonight, he agreed the well breaker should stay off. He didn’t like the lights flickering either and said something about arcing. They replaced the well pump in 2016 when they lifted the pump up quite a few feet because I was getting too much silt. So I’m glad Interstate was the last to deal with it and happy they are coming early tomorrow. Where is Mr. EOS you ask??? Welll, no pun intended, he went up to RI today where he HAS water so I get to be without water all alone. Fun fun fun.
