    In a story about construction on Fray Juan de San Miguel and a lack of water for some of our neighbors for three weeks I pointed out that the effects on us, personally, had been very minor, so far. From September 30 News: Nightmare on Fray Juan de San Miguel street.

    Then on October 5 in Nightmare on Fray Juan de San Miguel street, part two. I noted that it had now affected us directly as our tinacos had run dry. In that post, I said "We do not have a cistern but are looking into adding one."

    Now, here in Part Three, the water nightmare has ended.

    At least for us. We now have a cistern. We elected to go with a pre-fab smallish cistern for minimal disruption to existing plants and trees. It adds 2800 liters of water storage and we can now pump water up to the tinacos when the city water pressure is not sufficient to push the water up to the roof.

    This is the before pic, where the cistern would be located:

    This is the hole for the cistern, lined with block:

    The cistern in its new home:

    And the after picture (looks better than the before):
    obbzy26h43pg60fl.jpg

    The cistern can fill with very little water pressure from the city and holds 2800 liters of water. The tinacos can be filled directly as before by city water (when there is enough pressure) or from the cistern and its pump depending on settings.

    We are very pleased with the work which was done by Jose Vega.

    My resistance has stemmed from fairly understandable reasons, I think; among them: Staring at screens hurts my eyes, I refuse to be enslaved by a machine, and I believe I was born in the wrong century.

    Even as a child, when television was new, watching it gave me headaches. I preferred to play outdoors than be glued to the TV screen in the living room, the way the other kids were. As it turned out, I’m very far-sighted; so it’s more comfortable for my eyes to look far into the distance – past the treetops, into the hills — than it is to try to focus on anything close. ...

    ...

    So please save the date:

    Sunday, December 6 at 4 pm US Mountain Time.

    All are invited to attend, and it’s free of charge, of course. Closer to the date, I’ll be providing more information as needed. And maybe by that time I’ll be a pro at zooming! This is one computer party I don’t want any of us to miss. I’d love to see you there.
