Today's picture shows a woman drawing water from a shallow well. How nice it must have been to be able to hit water only a few feet deep. The picture was taken in 1937 in Minnesota.
The tension is so heavy in the air here you could cut it with a small hand spade. The children have become optimistic that we are about to his water. So optimistic in fact that they have completely turned over their 1/2 acre garden, and have planted new seedlings.
The moment of truth has arrived! A bucket is being lowered on a rope to the bottom of the well, and now is being drawn back out!
Tune in tomorrow when we will learn if there is anything in the bucket!
