Thankful Thursday w/Linky: Natural Spring Water on the Farm

It's the second day of back to school and the weather couldn't be any better.  It was so beautiful out that when I returned home from drop-off, I decided to take a little hike up the hill behind our house.

As I walked towards the natural spring water tank that sits on the hill, I heard a little trickle.  There are a few small leaks in the tank and it got me thinking about how thankful I am that we had SO much rain during our wet season last winter.  I know our neighbors to the east, in Texas and quite a few other states are in dire straights this summer with very little water.

Today, I'm thankful for our natural spring water supply, still plentiful at the end of summer.

Here's our water tank that sits atop the hill behind our home.  Water comes in from a natural spring we have on the property and supplies our homes with water. 

The dairy farm, itself is supplied by city water.  In the photo below you can see the rooftop to our home on the right and our silage bags and commodity barn in the center and one of the dairy freestall barns to the left.
What are you thankful for today??

Things are pretty green here right now, although we have had wetter summers. As long as the well doesn't go dry, we are happy campers! :-))

The view from your water tank is beautiful. I would live up there (away from the kids:)
