I love having Mac at the oasis, especially when I'm stuck in town. He's my eyes down there. And he takes really spectacular photos. Incredible shot of the storm, from the oasis, that didn't bring any rain last night.
He's going back to his home in a week and will be missed. When I was pumping water yesterday he was a lifesaver. The 3" line kept blowing apart when I started the gas pump. Finally figured out it was totally blocked with impacted rodent nests. I couldn't have gotten that heavy stiff pipe back together without his help. Now that I know the rodents will do that, I'll take measures to be sure it can't happen again. There was no reason I left an end of the pipe open in the first place. Just didn't know it mattered. I do now.
When I came to town today I forgot to take a photo of my stucco tank water. It's 39" below the elbow, so about 2/3 full. Mac will take me a photo in the morning so I can enjoy looking at all my water, even when I can't be there.
