The Water Line Reel
No, this is not the name of a dance. That is a reel of 2,500′ of water line that arrived after Thanksgiving. My intention was to install it this fall but that is not going to happen.
When our tractor broke just before Thanksgiving it put us in a bit of a bind. The little blue New Holland rental tractor was not even capable of getting the reel of water line off of the delivery truck – instead we had to unload the pipe by rolling the reel down the sand pile. Once it was on the ground I tried lifting with the little tractor and almost flipped the rental. The reel didn’t budge. There was no way the New Holland could carry the line up the mountain.
By the time we got our bigger tractor back after Christmas the weather was cold enough that putting in the line is no longer an option. The ground is now hard and the plastic pipe is so stiff we can’t roll it out properly to get the continuous downhill slope we need.
The new water line is a project that is going to have to wait until spring. Life happens.
