Day Four — Pulling the Pipe Through — Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Today it was just Terry and Richard.  No extra help.

They first had to attach the huge water boring machine head to the black pipe

I was to go to the corrals and make sure something didn’t go wrong. Richard ran the boring machine

gradually, gradually bringing the black pipe through the corrals, under the road, under the lawn to the fence line where the blue pipe will be attached to the black pipe.

Terry stayed at the entrance to make sure everything went smooth there

It took a long amount of slow steady pulling, but the end finally made it into the goat corral!  Yay!

FINISHED!  The pipe was through!

I looked up and Terry was waving to Richard to stop!  Then Terry was moving quickly to the water meter box.

The pipe had hit the waterline!

Stay tuned for the water line repair!

See you tomorrow!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda
