Yes, we have a cute little stream. That’s not the problem. The problem is caused by the torrential rains we’ve had the last couple of weeks and the havoc it causes with our driveway.
A few weeks ago, it rained all day while I was at work. When I came home, I had to navigate the Grand Canyon to make it to the garage. Deep trenches sliced down our driveway and washed out our precious gravel. But Chris took it in stride, took his shovel, and spent hours outside filling the gullies. He trenched where he could to re-direct the water and smoothed everything out so it looked perfect again.
Until last night.
The Grand Canyon has returned. The rain has carved grooves deeper that I would have been able to shovel creating some ready-made trenches into which we need to install some drainage pipes.
It is yet another project to tackle, as if the list isn’t long enough already. But I think this is one is outside the scope of Chris’ tool shed. Too many more of these types of projects and Chris will want his own back-hoe or a bob-cat or some other sort of major “toy” to add to the shed. Just sayin’.
