Just when we really didn't need any extra pressure......the septic tank down at the barn backed up and a "out of use" sign appeared on the bathroom door. So, is it only me that suddenly requires the facilities MUCH more when I can't use it ? Once again a hole had to be dug and once again it had to be filled in but not before the wonderful man from Hemleys (the honey bucket people) came and did his thing....and not a moment too soon ! Digging a hole sort of simplifies what was actually quite the challenge due to the frozen ground...Greg (1) and Greg (2) set to work with the spade and barely scratched the surface.....the tractor was called in to break ground and the rusting old backhoe was resurrected from the bone yard to finish the excavation of the septic tank. Measurements were taken....photographs recorded the exact ( maybe) position of the offending and apparently over used facility and both Gregs broke a sweat despite the Arctic (ish) temperatures.
Tomorrow is another day....maybe MJ will be wrong....but I'm going to find an extra set of thermals, just in case ! Take care, keep safe and warm. M
