We seemed to have jogged a few memories of old cistern tales out there. Thanks to everyone that sent in their stories. Also, we forwarded those stories to "The Prairie Connection."
Comments:Thanks! This NW Okie has been corrected and her memory refreshed. So... our water was hauled from Waynoka, Oklahoma on a flat-bed truck leaving a washed road look behind. I never knew that part of the story. Thanks for sharing. ~NW Okie (a.k.a. Linda Wagner) 2006-02-05 13:35:59
LK, your cistern water came from Waynoka on the back of a flat bed truck in a tank that leaked so much that it looked as if a road washer was headed up highway 14. And the cistern water smelled and tasted like cistern water, nothing else like it. One of the best things that happened to that part of the country was the rural water program. ~SBW 2006-02-05 13:15:44
