A Quick Update..............
One of our worries is the well. We've had to turn it off because even the mid-size generator can't handle that load. Our external tank holds 5,000 gallons of water and we're at 3,500 right now. So, we are really trying to conserve our water usage. I ran to Kmart and got paper plates, towels, cups and spoons to just throw away during this time. We're also filling our water buckets and arrowhead type jugs at our neighbors' house and that has been a huge help.
Our son (who is learning disabled and someday I will share his story) just can't deal well with this kind of an adventure, so he's staying with our daughter and son-in-law. Actually, the less people using the resources we have available is much better at the moment.
The company that works on these Italian generators will be up tomorrow morning at 9, so cross your fingers and toes that they can figure out the problem and hopefully have the right parts. ($125 per hour from the time they leave Bakersfield!!!)
I'll post another update as soon as I can. Many, many thanks to all of you for your prayers and good wishes.
