I sure wish we could punch a shallow hole and get water like yall Ron. The well at mom's , now daughter's home, is failing because of repeated dry summers. I talked to the driller last night and I guess we are gonna bite the bullet and drill one over there. It will eliminate a problem that we will continue to have. I shoulda done this a few years ago when problems began. Mom was not living there though, and there was a question as to where to locate it because of the way the deed was written and land tracts were located. I also wasn't sure that the property would remain in the family. We drilled one here I think 4 years ago, and the cost was around $4k. I figure at least 5 to 6 K now. Given the gubbermint's monetary policy, our money is worth much less than 4 years ago. :roll: Might as well spend on something that will produce some benefit while we can.
