The good news is that we finally had RAIN...as in over an inch. It was the first measurable rainfall in more than 300 days. We are thrilled. Unfortunately, the storms knocked out the electricity. Nothing like tossing out the refrigerated items you had just restocked the week before!
We have also had a problem with the pumps on two of the tanks. Obviously, with the lack of rain, if the pump doesn't run, there is no water in the tanks and the fish go belly-up. We seem to have a spoilage theme going. Of course, the auxiliary generator might have affected the pumps, so we had to purchase a new one. (Just in case it was the culprit.) It was not and now we own two generators.
