Dynamick--Thanks for the water trough. It was incredibly generous of you!

However, I think the story of how the 100 gallon water trough wronged you is worth a few electrons. Apparently you thought you should have a nice backyard oasis complete with a fish/koi pond. You buried the water trough for a long 6 years so it was ground level.

For the next 5.5 years, a night heron would visit you regularly. Not only did he go "fishing" in your trough, but he also took a big birdie sized bath. At some point between fishing and bathing, he would knock over the recirculating pump then leave. For the next 6+ hours while you were away from your castle, the pump would now "recirculate" the 100 gallons into your yard. I guess that is only fun a half dozen times or so to find a self-inflicted flood at your house!
