Well Mother Nature tried real hard yesterday to wash the mountain away. It was a scary couple of hours as logs and stumps floated down the main road by the garage. We spent a couple of cold and wet hours clearing debris and unplugging drain pipes in the raging waters. The runoff rose to within a foot of the garage but luckily we had built it with drainage in mind. After I surveyed the damage this morning, I felt we were lucky. We lost about a foot of road at the garage entrance and I’ll be fixing the damage in the yard from the erosion for a long time. But, the buildings look okay and the sun is out now. The flowers of spring are popping proving that the mountain survived.
