another new experience

I never thought I'd ever see the local fire truck backing into my yard garden without the house being on fire!


Our water tank was discovered mysteriously empty yesterday morning and  this is the man who drove the fire tanker to refill it. That's Hubby keeping him company.

Hopefully, we can figure out why it wasn't full in spite of the rain that we have had lately.

Thank you, Eltham Volunteer Fire Department for the 13,000 liters of water--even if it only filled it about half way!

I have never seen this happen. It makes me wonder if our local fire department would offer this service. Was there a charge for this service?

Betty Luckhurst said...

Yes, Norma, there is a charge, but I don't know how much, since the landlord is the one who pays for it.

An interesting glimpse of life in New Zealand. :)

Well, I'm glad there wasn't a fire! Hope the mystery of the missing water will be solved.

That's super nice that they came out to fill it!

Why do you need a water tank like that? no mains.

Thanks for your visit to my blog and your comment.

I never heard of the fire department giving this service in the US. I'm glad you were able to fill your water tank with their help.

Hi Betty
Thank you for following me! I must admit I do appreciate mains water but super cool to have a delivery with a fire engine in the garden - hope you don't use it up too quickly, 3 Minute showers!!!
