The heat index in Grand Rapids today was 107 degrees......... so we find out this morning that we need a new well and will have no water until that job is done, hopefully by the end of the day tomorrow. It's nice to be able to take showers in the midst of a heat wave, but we make do-----with the mighty Grand River running less than 30 feet from our door. It's a clean river so tonight we put on our swim suits, crawled over the rocks into the current and took our baths the way people have done since the beginning of time.
