Since we live in south Texas, you must know that water is very precious. As in, we don’t have enough, we don’t get enough rain, and the utility company charges a lot for the privilege of using the water. Or connecting you to the water. The lot we’re purchasing claimed to have water already hooked up…great, that’s a cost we don’t have to incur (not that we didn’t pay for it already in the cost of the lot). We couldn’t actually find the water though and the water company said they had no record of it. Nor would they go out and look for it unless we provided a record or something to show water existed.
Apparently John knows this plumber who dowses for water. I mean, who thought that was real? Especially when I found pictures of people using a coat hanger –which then makes me believe in it less. I mean, wasn’t the point supposed to be that the wood in the dowsing rod goes towards water? How does that work with a piece of metal then? Sounds like bunk to me…even Wikipedia thinks dowsing is bunk. 😉 And you know that Wikipedia cannot be wrong!
But, our chain of communication from John-> our realtor-> seller’s realtor -> seller -> seller’s husband resulted in the news that the elusive water was found and marked! And the location is relatively convenient. Yay!
