First off, I wasn’t feeling up to par yesterday and last night I woke up around 01:30 shaking and shivering from a high fever. Dang, I haven’t been sick for years, what happened? Took two aspirins and went back to bed. Woke up this morning, still not feeling up to par and found out we didn’t have any water.
Went and looked at the well and the only thing I can think happened was the fire ants shorted out the pressure switch contacts and burned the pump motor out. Don’t know for sure but will dig out an old set of points and see if that works. I still can’t pump water; since I need to prime the well and I don’t have near enough water to do that. If I can get up enough energy to try out the old points, maybe (if they work) I will go buy a lot of those gallon water jugs.
Think I will go back out to the couch and lay down for awhile. Like I said, this is the first time in many years that I have been sick. This time doesn’t seem to be too bad yet, and hopefully it will go away quickly.
You all have a wonderful Memorial Day, you hear?
