We’re melting around here already and the temperatures are supposed to claw their way back into the 60s this weekend. (Yay.) Which is a good thing because I have the usual array of odd problems that need work that just seem to come with an old place. There is always a new and different plumbing problem due to old pipes. The latest is the gurgling forth of water up out of the ground in the barn yard in front of the alleyway, by one of the outdoor faucets. Fantastic! This means I have an underground leak! It needs dug up! I’m just glad I’m not doing the digging! And I need to buy new heat tape for the well bladder tank. I wrapped it in an insulation blanket and saddle pads and a tarp last night when I realized the heat tape wasn’t working. And I need to get the de-icer into the cow’s water tank and get the extension cords strung up inside the barn to keep the lines away from the animals. And. And. And. I could go on! What time did you say you would be here?
