“Our” Cows
September 24th, 2006.
Morning.
Some of the cows came to visit today, and I happened to have the camera ready, so here they are… They need to work harder at keeping the meadow mowed, though.

Winterizing the Water Lines

OK, we actually made it back on schedule!
I had wrapped the connection in duct tape to protect it from the sun, in case we didn’t make it back for a long time.
Here, we took a cheap indor/outdoor thermometer and connected the outdoor sensor directly to the pipe, so we can keep track of the temperature of the water at that point. It has the indoor and outdoor reads, and more importantly, has the minimum and maximum reads since the last time it was reset. So when we visit, we can check to see how cold the water got since last time we were up. That might give us a heads-up that we might need more insulation if the reads go too low.
Pay no attention to the reads in the picture, I haven’t peeled off the plastic demo tape yet!

Water Line Installation Again…

Back at It…
09 Sep 2006.
Well, this sure took some time…I was sent on several business trips over July and August, as well as a personnal trip to Colorado in July, so we didn’t make it back up until September!
We finished digging through the rocks (using a pick and shovel) for the last 15 feet to the wash house. After placing the rest of the pipe and gluing it up, we covered it back up with dirt.
