Going Old School

Yesterday morning my central computer that controls the irrigation system went down for the count. Not the greatest news when we have just had our fourteenth consecutive day of temperatures in the 90’s.

Without the central computer working, the irrigation system can not be operated automatically. The only way to start the irrigation for the night was to manually go to each of the 89 satellite controllers and start each one of them. Hydraulically it is not the best way to do it, but it is better than no water at all going out.
