Water, Water, Everywhere!
Oh, my! There are puddles and pools in the fields everywhere here in Northern New Hampshire! It is MUD SEASON, and it's NOT pretty!
We spent an hour or so digging little trenches from the garage door to the little down-ward incline of our driveway. The driveway is packed staymat, so it is "diggable". Anyway, now the water is running the right way, AWAY from the garage.
Those little trenches are not easy to dig, because we've got our own brand of close to "permafrost". That's the reason for MUD SEASON. The surface on the dirt roads get wet, but the moisture in them can't go down into the ground since that ground is frozen solid, so it just stays on top and is SLOPPY, MUDDY, SLIPPERY AND FULL OF TIRE TRACKS AND RUTS! What a mess.
But at least, which you'll know if you check out the "permafrost link", ours does finally thaw out in a few weeks or so! In the meantime however, it's just awful!
