The water well shut down. So I went to check the fuse and it was OK. Then I went to the well cover and lifted it. Immediately saw the problem. The Bride in her fear of the pump freezing had wrapped the whole thing within insulation so thick that the pump motor was not getting cooling air. So I saw having to go buy another jet pump. My Bride just said she can see the sprinkler she had running spraying water again. Thank goodness for thermal breakers in electric motors. IF she actually sees water spraying.

Life is a collection of stories we old people tell and hope a few will listen and carry them into the future.

There is a story to everything we have, everyone we have met and everything we have done or we will do or dream about doing.

We sometimes ride to forget, but hopefully we never forget to ride.

at least the thermal breaker stepped in and closed the gate for a while.
