Most everyone, including me, that has their own wells, have the pump and pressure tank sitting on a slab of cement at the well site. Back just after it was put in, I built a small enclosure that looked like a little house, that I would put a light bulb in it when there was a chance of freezing. That little building as gone away and I have just tossed a couple of tarps over it with a light bulb under the tarps that I plug in when the temperatures are going to drop below freezing. By the way, it is almost impossible to find those old type light bulbs. The new type do not give off much heat, if any. When I do find the old style bulbs, I purchase a few of them.
Just now on the eleven am news, they said that it would drop way below freezing again tonight. If it keeps this up, this will be one of the coldest winters we have had. We still have a lot of winter left, and you never know what it will be like. Maybe I will have to find an Old Farmer's Almanac and see if it will be or not. There was some frozen precipitation last night but not enough to cause any problems.
Yep, I know. You people that live way up in the north part of the world (or down at Antarctica) are laughing really hard at me for thinking that the 20's are really cold. I lived up north and loved the fresh fallen snow. I always had some excuse to be out in it, but after I have lived down here for awhile, my blood must have thinned and I get cold quicker than I ever did. . . just don't tell me that is because I have gotten old! Now, you all keep warm and cozy and have a great day, you hear?
