Wet (and miserable) Wednesday

What an ugly day it turned out to be.  It was raining when I got up this morning, and 15 hours later it is still raining. This afternoon when we put on our rain gear and slogged around the block with the dogs, we realized the culvert under our driveway was plugged and water was running over the driveway.  Larry and David had been weedeating the ditch and I guess all the long loose grass had plugged the culvert.  I had a go with that stick you can see, but the water was too deep. 

 When we got back, Larry rounded up some weapons, and managed to push the grass plug enough that the water broke through.

It was really roaring at the other side

He hauled a lot of the grass cuttings out.

And then the ditch was back to normal.  Well except for a lot of topsoil washing out of our neighbour's field.

I'm just glad that we aren't dealing with the floods in the southern states or in Manitoba.
And we're all sick of this miserable cold wet Spring we are having.


  1. That is some river in the ditch! We are back to cold and miserable today..we had two days that were very nice. Enjoy the nice days when you have them I guess:)

  2. You have my sympathies.
    We had a lovely sunny day that was dampened by a cold and very strong wind yesterday, but today looks promising.

  3. Yukky weather! We will send sun
