WELL that may be an overstatement, but last night a mild rain came up the river and lasted
for quite a while. in fact maybe it also rained in the night because i walked out in bare feet this morning and the lawn (what was the lawn) was cold and really damp, just delightful.
BUT STILL NO WATER IN THE TAPS (town water in the house though thank god)
the morning after brendan came the garden taps were dry again, i just gave the whole thing a miss yesterday after texting him but today i'm hoping he'll come and meet with terry, the pump man from here who's worked on this particular pump a lot in the past. and the saga continues . . . groan
