Good rains for Chennai

This summer we struggled with water as Chennai was water starved. So when we had rains this Novemebr it was very refreshing.

Now all the water bodies near our home are full. This has enabled us to get good water supply through our bore wells.

Last summer at the height of drought, our bore well would pump water for only five minutes at a time. With the rains the water table has come well. Our vacant neighbours’ plots have about 6 inches of standing water. Now the bore motor pumps without stopping.

You’ll be surprised, the water was so plentiful, water was flowing like a stream along the street in front of our house for a number of days.

However, the number of flats have come up in such large numbers, I am not sure how long this bountifull wate rsupply would last.

We are thankful to God for His mercies in providing us the water.
