Dry Rainy Season

It's been pretty dry and hot around here (well, 80 degrees feels hot when you are used to 65-70!) Rainy season started in late May, but we ran into a mini dry season the last week or so. We burned out our pump motor for the cistern, which wasn't a problem while it was raining and the city water supply was generous. But yesterday we woke up to very little water (not enough to shower) and figured we'd better call the repair man pronto.
Jose is a great fix-it guy Kemmel found and appears to be honest. He didn't quite finish today and wouldn't accept payment for the work--"not until I leave it completely right".
So no pump tonight, but the city water came back on full force and it started raining tonight--YEA.
