The heavens opened up last night with 3 inches of rain falling in about an hour. We stood at the window and watch helplessly as the driveway to the barn washed into the pond. The pool filled with mulch and feed pans looked as if they were snow boarding down the hill. Today we surveyed the damage and began clean up.
The barn was flooded about halfway back and had to be scraped out. The drive had 8 inch ruts running through and and so a load of gravel was required. The pool, a murky mess, will take quite some time to return it to normal. The garden held up fairly well with only a half of a row of crowders washing away.
That Mother Nature can sure be one tough chick!
