We're officially having a geothermal heating and cooling system installed in our home! It is something Shane has been thinking about for a while, and after last winters propane bills, decided to go ahead and do it. The energy company also offered some rebates to encourage people to do this - so that helped, too. The kids pulled their little chairs up to the sliding back door to watch the whole thing. There was a huge drilling truck to drill holes 200 feet into the ground, then this scoop (or, backhoe thingy) to put all the dirt back. It is a muddy mess!!
