Locals v. Interlopers

We've had some cloudiness and occasional (what I thought was) sediment in our water. The well guys came out yesterday to check it out, run tests, etc. They found that what I thought was sediment was actually iron flakes (some manganese too - 2.0 parts of iron and .5 parts manganese). We talked about filtering options. And when I asked them about whether these levels were too high to just live with, one of the guys paused thoughtfully and said, "Probably for you."

I was sure you'd get a kick out of that. It's the whole pool/pond thing. I almost laughed out loud when he said it.

Exactly. The pond would be good for you, Carl. Pure genius.
