The Driveway Saga Begins...



The driveway, a steep sometimes menacing hill that washes out with the heavy rains, that requires 4 wheel drive in the winter, and sometimes in the summer...it is getting a face lift this year. We can't change the steep angle but we are working with a fella who has great road building skills [and who is a friend and neighbor] to improve the water runoff problem and this is something I'm going to document from begining to end!
We've dug down to the utilities, that is what you see flagged off on each side of the road. Road tubes will go in these at a 45 degree angle ... we are getting water ways built in to help with the run off.
Morris has been a great supervisor through all of the begining stages. Somehow I feel the supervisor will not be around the heavy machinery!

Yep, that's a pretty steep hill. You guys are so industrious in that hot humid weather. I hope you're listening to the "supervisor" and keeping your arm quiet. I think you can raise it up to point and say "here Richard, no, there Richard and deeper Richard" Morris might need some help with the supervision. Hope it goes well...I'm headed back to the deconstruction of the window.
