The Water is Back On, Sort of

Riverton, Utah        High 97 Low 70

It is still way too hot to enjoy. We have been staying inside, in the air conditioning, mostly.

Friday I had a colonoscopy which wasn’t too much fun, but unlike the last one, this time they didn’t find any polyps, so I don’t have to have another one for 5 years. I have been having trouble swallowing pills and so they also did an endoscopy. Fortunately I was out for both procedures. They found some damage from stomach acid and so I have one more pill to take in the morning.

Saturday the secondary water was turned back on in the late morning, but there wasn’t much pressure, perhaps from all the people using it. But it soon turned into a small dribble. Yesterday morning the pressure was still way down but we had some water. Then this morning, there was no water at first. We have 8 valves and by the time the 6th one opened all of a sudden we had good pressure again. I restarted the timer and it seemed to work this time, so maybe the water will stay on this time. We have some brown lawn and I hope the water pressure stays up this time.

We have picked our fill of apricots and the neighbors have picked some, but the birds are still knocking more than 5 gallons a day on the ground.  

We finally got a few ripe tomatoes but there are not enough for Cindy to do the canning she wants to do. The ones off our vines are way better than what we can buy in the grocery stores.

That’s about all that has been going on our way.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. They mentioned on the news this morning how hot it was down your way. We've been really warm but cooling off at night. However next Saturday - 99. Hope your water stays on especially for those tomatoes.
