willing and able...
A couple of good storms popped up again in the area so I got my "pumping station" ready. Laid out the lines and the PVC inlet. I made the PVC piping a couple of years ago when I discovered the soft outlet hose doesn't like to bend when it is under pressure. It is all ready to go but I'll keep the pump back in the greenhouse to till I'm ready - it really doesn't like to start when it is soaked and I don't really need to make a housing for it out in the field since it is easy to move. One of my neighbors west of me got almost 2" of rain today. Me...just a sprinkle. I have high hopes for later in the week though...75,94,74, .09",C
