So, we closed on our house a bit under a month ago. Got the flooring finished last week (the vinyl laminate floor is gorgeous, and will last us for three or four decades, easy), and started moving more than the storage unit.
Also, last week, we had some nasty, heavy storms. And haven't spent much time in the house since Thursday, when my family came over to help me with a few things in the new kitchen (linoleum peel-n-stick tiles lining cabinet shelves). Partially because I wore myself out to the point my immune system went down hard. I got some shopping done, but that was really about it. Friday afternoon, I went to bed, and kinda stayed there, except for when a tornado warning was posted on the radio for the listening area, and I herded the kids and dog into the bathroom (not the cats--the dog was scared because of the thunder, and the storm was kicking up more to our east than in line to threaten us) until it passed.
Yesterday was pretty rainy. We did a bit but not a lot on the move (and I was still down). Odysseus took our imp to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2. And took loads of kids' toys over to the new place.
Today, I felt better, so we packed up our storage cubbies and took them over. I also packed up sandwiches and chips for everybody, and took lunch over to eat around Odysseus's grandmother's dining room table (which my family helped me set up--a heavy, 4' x 6' dining table with drop leaves running long-ways). Odysseus took the tea he'd made and killed it, then went to make another pitcher...
...and we abruptly lost water pressure.
Flipped breakers to pump and to pressure tank.
Waited. Went and got some new light fixtures (one we replaced because neither of us cared for it; the other was a pendant light we replaced because Odysseus banged his head on it more than once getting stuff in the front door), and tried the water pressure again.
We have left a message with a local well pump guy, but will also be calling at a civilized time tomorrow morning.
