Well, January is almost here again.

 

It was the 17th of January, 2016, when we filled in the "old" pond and dug the new one. We will be continuing that work this January, or as soon as we can get back to the farm. We have to do what we are going to do while dry season is upon us, so we can beat the rains and have the new house constructed before they arrive again. 

 

I decided to visit Google to take a look at the map location, rather than taking time to find photos and screenshots of the farm. I see they had updated the satellite image since I had last visited their site.

 

Here is the previous image (screenshot) I took, when we were filling in and digging the ponds:

Here is the one I just viewed. Looks like I was off just a bit, regarding the location of the new pond.

Here is another early image I got from Google, as well. No worries. I will just have them continue to dig it out, toward the berm to the left of the new pond.

Here is the link to the previous thread using the earlier images.

The latest image was last March, showing the pond dug, but not filled. It filled itself during rainy season. You should see it here, empty?

It rained a lot at the farm, as recently as two nights ago. Not good for us as long as the ground stays wet.

But the latter google map shows nothing of that evidence! Technology shows nothing.

I was referring to the map I posted the second time, showing the pond having been dug out, Andy. It does show an empty pond. During rainy season, it fills fast. It only has about a 500,000 liters capacity. In fact, any future ponds are going to be 

 

 

Naturally, the chances would be slim for them to have taken another satellite image within the past 48 hours. I was merely making a statement that we are going to be held up on construction, until the land has dried sufficiently enough to put the heavy equipment out there. Last year this time, we had already filled in the old pond. Hopefully, the land will dry soon, though.

 

Download and install Google Earth. You have more freedom with it than you do Google Maps. Here, you will see it shows the image I posted, as having been taken in March, 2016. If you were to go into the settings of Google Earth, you would see the image was taken on 02 / 03 / 2016.
