Spring Storms plus

wall cloudWe are just wrapping up our C.E.R.T. live training, graduation and leaving the 911 building when all our phones started going off with the warnings. First was severe Thunderstorm and minutes after that was tornado warnings. We did end up in hail but no “cows” if you remember that movie.  What a spectacular scene with the huge wall cloud and after seeing all the pictures showing up on the internet this was a huge event covering multiple counties.

Oh, what is CERT? Community Emergency Response Team who’s role is to help in the event of a disaster assisting the Erie County Emergency Management. CERT is everywhere check with your county officials to find when training is available if you would like to volunteer.

Once the storm cleared it was time for a road trip to visit a couple pond owners and explain the details of aeration, howhail it works and why sizing is important. Not just putting in bottom diffused aeration but sizing it for that specific pond. Yes there are small systems where we can keep a hole open in the ice but not able to turn over the entire pond water volume once a day. Now that the weather is calming down and the temps are rising aeration will become a needed tool for a healthy pond, not just for the water but the fish as well.

Take a minute and check out the different Aeration Systems to see which one may fit your pond. Then Submit a ticket or shoot us an email and we’ll work out the calculations for a sure fit.

wanda and boys lil pondFinally it was time to relax for a minute. The sun was out and a comfortable breeze. Fed the boys and fish at the big pond and took a walk to the little pond for their desert, feed the fish and Ohmi decided to cool off a little. For some reason Clem doesn’t like the water, he even gets worried while getting a drink and his toes get wet. Awesome day, Spring has finally Sprung so now we can enjoy our waters, take a swim, fish, watch the abundance of life and just relax.
