I heard today that this is the driest it has been in 47 years. I made an effort to keep water close by for some of the wildlife. A few days ago I purified my well. That means I dumped a couple bottles of bleech down the pipe, took off for Aurora and left the bleech to kill off anything lurking in the pipes and well. Now that I am back it will take a few days to get the chlorine out of the system. If the little critters can hang on for a few more days, I'll have water for them again.
