Rain, snow, cold, and mud

We've had a lot of rain the past few days and even a little snow yesterday.  Water and dirt equals mud. Loose dirt on a hillside along with lots of rain equals mud slides.  Yes, there was mud sliding down where the new road is going.  The crew brought in gravel and stones this morning to try to fill the hole a bit.  But....this afternoon they dug it all back out because of all the water pooling at the bottom.  They dug down to the drainage pipe that was put in some time ago.  I'm not sure what is going on at this point.  We are going to Kansas City for a week, so it will be interesting to see what has happened while we are gone.

At least it will keep them busy for a while longer.
