Let me borrow your imagination for a minute. dry well in New England, ND. dry well in New England, ND. Imagine you are lost in the Sahara Desert wandering aimlessly just hoping you'll come across an oasis. After what has seemed like an eternity you come across and old fashion water spout. You know the kind you would find on most farms in the Midwest a century ago. They have a long handle that you have to pump in order to get the water to start flowing.
After you touch it to confirm that it is not a mirage, you begin to pump after 5 pumps no water comes out. You give it another 5 then 10, still no water. You have been walking for so long you can barely stand up and don't know how much longer you can keep it up. But you keep pumping 10, 20, 30 more times and still no water. The question now is when do you stop pumping? The next pump could be the one that starts the water flowing. If you stop and take a break, all the effort you have already put in will be wasted. But you know for sure if you don't get water soon, you won't survive. This well offers you the only possibility of survival. So keep pumping. If you are going to go down, don't let it happen with out a fight.
