Well we went back down and tried blowing the lines with air and water for over two hours but still did not get any more water pressure! Very frustrating. We may have to lay new pipe on top of the ground if we cannot figure out a way to fix this problem. But one good thing....at least there was enough water to flush the toilet! And George loves it down there! He is now the official Dahlia House cat!

We just finished spending the weekend down at the house with Jahn, Em and Madi. The weather was crisp and cold but no rain so working on the water system wasn't as bad as it could have been. They were still very wet and cold when they came back down though! The system that Brian built to put in the stream works! He worked on it all week after getting input from Adam and Heather. So we think we have a trickle of water. The line seems to be partially blocked somewhere along the way, but a little bit is getting through. They blew it out with the air compressor quite a few times, but still no luck. Brian is going to go back down and try it again this week. This time with a generator to keep up a steady volume of air.
Madi and I took walks and played on the computer and fixed the meals for the hard workers. She even went up and helped them for a while. I spent most of the time vacuuming up zillions of ladybugs! Blech!
It was a great weekend!

Went back down to check on George and work on the water system. It was a perfect fall day. Crisp and cold and lots of gold leaves everywhere.
George is doing fine! He loves it down there and follows us around inside and out! Hope he is getting those mousies!

Adam & Heather & Zach came down last weekend and I watched Zach while the rest went up on the hill and worked on the old water system. Boy were they cold and wet when they came back down! But a little bit of progress was made. Hopefully we can finish it this weekend! Sure would be nice to have water.
Took our cat George down there! Hope he is going to discourage the mouse population! Go get them George!
