Hosing down the road
My neighbor, Olivar, decided to hose down the very dusty road in front of his place yesterday. It was a real test for his pump and newly drilled well. The operation used a lot of water, but he managed to cut down the dust factor considerably. I figure that our own well will be ready in the next few days, so I'll join in the fun. I'd like to think that we'll get some rain soon, but every day is another day of blue skies, blinding sunlight and winds roaring up the Amazon Basin onto the Planalto (highlands). Even a full moon isn't helping.
