I now know that in addition to mowing hay, a method to encourage rainfall is to drill a well. We had about 5 inches of rain last week. Much of it ran off, but there is some moisture in the ground at least for another few days. :roll:
.....or schedule an afternoon motorcycle ride with the missus.... ;) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am very happy for you and your daughter. Drilling wells has always been a pretty big deal in Central North Carolina because of the pretty good prices on average a well costs about $6,500 to $7,500. This includes all the costs associated with drilling and installing a pumping system. In some cases, air conditioning equipment is required, which usually costs $1,500 to $3,000. When my family and I drilled wells for cable drilling, we also had to use chisels for cable drilling because it was almost impossible to do without chisels. As I know, the average life of a well ( of any kind ) is 30-50 years, so one drilling will last almost a lifetime.
