I just wanted to share with you, real quick, how the trench I dug at the bottom of the deck steps seems to be working so far…
We just had a down pour! It actually started raining right before I was getting ready to get in the pool…so, I took my clothes off, left them on the porch and wrapped a towel around me and got in the pool. Yes, I skinny dip in the middle of the day…I can, no one will see me! As I told my dad years ago…”Who am I going to offend, the deer?” When I said that, I was making a statement about my work attire…sports bra and shorts, working on the property clearing downed trees. But, it applies here too…
Below is a video I took during the downpour…
As you can see, the trench I dug a week or so ago seems to be working! YAY!!
Still waiting for a real heavy downpour, but at least for now I know it’s working. Eventually, I will do more work on it…
I started working on this back in 2015, and yes, I did it myself…with tips from my dad. The last two photos are the most recent…I need to work on two of the bricks, but at least it’s working! Can’t really see it all, but eventually I will take more photos. I’ll do a separate post just on the work I’ve done. I’m sure, somewhere, I’ve got some photos from before I started working on this…
We are under tornado and thunderstorm threats until 11 tonight…
I’ve also got a video of a (temporary) river running through the property, uploaded to YouTube. Soon, I’ll put it in the sidebar. I keep forgetting to mention it, but I did recently upload a new video – Snail takes a ride. It’s available on youtube, here and twitter.
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
be proud of your progress
