So much has happened over the past month that I have not had time to write about all of it! One of the most exciting things that has happened is that the wind pump is working!
You may remember that a group came last year to built the cistern which would collect the water pumped by the wind pump. They had also intended to get the wind pump installed but too much wind had prevented them from putting the head on. The well that we had originally intended to put it on was also blocked from a pipe that dropped down in it… so everything was on hold.
In the meantime we were able to get an older, better well cleaned out. The man who sold us the wind pump also agreed to come down and finish the installation!
So, last month Ed Leid (from whom we bought the wind pump), his wife Renae, their son Justin, and Vince and Bruce from Rotary (who financed the project) came down to see to project completed.
