Digging on the farm

This machine worked almost all day digging a trench in my bro's front yard, revealing the water line from house to pump. Last winter the line froze so this year it is being redone and insulated anew.

The pump revealed.


Some of the old insulation.
They started around 9 am and finished around 4:30!

A lot of work. First thought, Could any of that turquoise pipe be used for art?
LOL
Happy pumping.

There is always something needs to be done when owning a house. Especially in the cold country.

Never a dull moment when you own a house.

Wow, that's a deep ditch! And a real mess. I hope they fixed the yard back. Your brother's house is cute. Good that you guys got that fixed. Nothing worse that frozen water pipes.

Gosh, what a huge job! We've been fortunate not to have any problems with our well or septic. (knock on wood)

I hope they did not make too much noise!
Thank you for your prayers for Spike.
