Well drilling today, need some little prayers!

Hi all!!!

We are drilling today, and I'm a nervous Wreck!
This well IS mostly for the horses and gardens, it's been a tough few years with the droughts. Even this year with all the rain we had to haul water some. Our well is only 135 feet deep, at 2,500 ft, on the top of a mtn... So pretty much seasonal, lol!

I need prayers for a gusher!!!!

Good luck flygap.
Until 1989 the farm relied on wells for water. They would go dry every summer and we had to haul water and have our clothes washed elsewhere.
I understand your situation.
I hope you hit a gusher too. Oil or water both are equally valuable. Shalom

I pray it does not go as bad as ours did. I wouldn't wish that on my enemies.
After your well is finished and up and running, I will have to list everything that went wrong with mine.

Good luck! Most, I think, go very well, Ha Ha Ha... pun intended!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

I'm curious. Did someone 'dowse' or 'witch' the spot you are drilling? Where do you live?

Sending prayers! H2O for Flygap, and lots of it!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

OH< man! that would be nervewracking. I guess it costs a lot of money to drill , and if you are wrong, well then, that would be terrible.

ok, sending positive vibes and thought your way. let us know if it's a HIT or a MISS.
