Could very well be the reason. Actually it is only about 90 ft. down. The river is running better now and what is left of Medina Lake is kinda stabilized. And I have a tank on a use to be spring fed creek that is coming up about a quarter inch a week. So my recharge dams must be working.
Some men when they go middle age crazy buy a sports car or such. I bought heavy equipment. A 450 JD Dozer, a D-7 Cat. dozer, a Cat. 70 scraper, a old ford dump truck, a Allis Chambers grader and a JD tractor with a loader. I probably have less money in them than a fancy sports car. And the wife is not as suspicious.
