The last several days have been cool, rainy,dreary and just kinda miserable up here in the Black Hills. That is up until yesterday. When I got up at 4am yesterday we were socked in...I mean heavy fog everywhere. I couldn't see the end of our driveway. Uh Oh, I thought another gloomy day. Suddenly the fog burned off and I could see that the sky was CLEAR. In a short time, it was a beautiful day.
Monday the "Well" guys didn't show up, as I expected. However, it was raining hard most of the time and we couldn't have done much anyhow. Yesterday (Tuesday) it was a beautiful sunny day and they were here bright and early.
I do believe in Miracles and I do believe I experienced one this weekend. Sunday before I left for Church at 8:30am, I did a test on the "Well" because I thought I had noticed something that I wanted to confirm. I turned the Pump on and let it build up to pressure. I put my pressure gauge on and it built up to 59 lbs and shut off. I then turned off the power to the pump. It seemed to be holding. Praise the Lord! Is this for real, or am I just imagining things? I took a close reading of the pressure and let it set for for a couple hours. When we got home shortly after 10:00 am, the pressure was still 59. Hallelujah !!!!! I still didn't believe my eyes. I watched it for a couple more hours. Sure enough it was holding. Hmmm, what happened? I watched it Monday in the rain off and on and amazingly it was holding. Tuesday I knew the "Well" guys would probably show up and that was fine. I wanted them to check this out and see if I was right.
The first "Well" guy showed up and I explained to him what I had discovered. He was amazed and wanted to wait for the head guy to get here and check it out. When he arrived and ran several tests, it was discovered that sure enough, a MIRACLE had happened and it was working perfectly.. In disbelief they packed up and went on to another job, telling me to watch it and let them know if we needed them. Keep your fingers crossed, I have been dissapointed before but so far so good. So, do I believe in Miracles? Yes I sure do and I thank God everyday for these kind of fine things that happen. We have WATER!!!
Our good friends and Motorcycle riding buddies, Gregg and Bonnie Gheyssens, are reporting in to us on their way to Alsaka. Last week they had arrived at Dawson Creek,BC and entered the Alaskan Highway. They are both on their Bikes and Gregg is pulling their Camper. They camped at Mile Marker "0" Campground. They have a neat setup. What an EXPERIENCE!!!
The weather has been slowing them down a little, but they are enjoying the sights so far. I have been tracking their progress on the map. They are heading on to Whitehorse, in the Yukon. Maybe they are getting close. WOW, what a trip!!! All I can say Gregg and Bonnie is, I wish we were with you. Please be careful and ENJOY!!! We're thinking of you...
