Park district chief John Skeel and his family woke up on Christmas Day to discover that Santa had left them with a dry well, forcing the family of five to go without toilet flushing and hot showers for a week.
By the day after New Year’s, the problem had been fixed with the addition of two 175-gallon storage tanks, and now the system works better than ever, Skeel said. “I can take a shower and run the dishwasher at the same time.”
Well experts diagnosed the problem as a relative lack of rain this year.
