We haven't had much precip since the monsoon season, which ended after about three weeks. Springs and catchment basins are drying up. To keep local Black Bears from getting into trouble down by the river, I talked some friends into hauling water on their backs along with help from a horse about a mile up a trail. We hauled over 60 gallons in just over an hour. Not bad.

Here's the tribute clip for everyone who helped today.

Well done and thanks to your friends who helped you out. I did the same thing back in 2012 when we had a pretty good drought here. I must admit I did it to capture pictures because I knew it was so dry, I would attract every living thing within a mile. And I did! I used kiddie wading pools to hold the water once they were in the woods. I took several very large coolers, filled them with water and transported them to the field with my 4-wheeler. It worked out pretty well. Once the drought broke in the fall, I collected the kiddie pools and brought them home. I have kept them but haven't needed them since.

Blessings..........Pastorjim
