We Started Drilling Our Well

May 19, 2015

 

The day to begin drilling our well finally came today. The day began interestingly enough. Our contractor called first thing this morning to say there was a calf with it's head stuck between the wheel and tool box of his water truck. So I in turn had to call the farmer that owns the cows and see if he could get right over there. Short version is the calf is OK with a minor scrape and a life lesson, don't look under trucks. At about 150 feet the hydraulic motor that is used for the rigging to pick up drilling pipe and set it in place decided to start leaking around the shaft seal. So around 1 p.m. we had to call it a day for repairs. These things happen and I know we'll be up and running as soon as it's possible.
