This will be interesting at the Tiny Russian Village…

imagesFour a.m. and Boza and I walked to the big well. I got the door opened and pushed the big green on button (big red button for off.) Then crackle and pop, the sealed main power box was flashing and smoking. The amp meter was buried all the way to max draw and I just as quickly hit the red stop button. All got quiet and I closed the door, after making sure no power was being drawn in anyway and locked the door…

This should be interesting to see how long it takes for someone from the local government comes to repair the well. We have half a well full, in ours and the top well is almost full. But ours leaks and will be dry in two days. We will get water from the top well until it is dry. I also have 200+ liters in storage in big rain collection barrels. We have water, but if reports of past issues with water are true, it might take awhile to get it fixed…

I will keep everyone informed as to the process and time it takes to get our well fixed. I would look at what happened, but the box has a seal on it and we are not allowed inside. Or better yet legally inside…

This could be interesting… (It could have been a power surge from the electrical storm a few days ago!)

Today we have the Auto Magazine coming. A truck that sells the village food. It comes on Fridays during the summer and I have a post here about the truck. (Here) The truck does good business and the people look forward to its appearance in the village. I go every Friday to help support the truck and Svetochka and I will go today also. We are a long ways from civilization and such a convenience is nice…
