Trench itPosted: April 5, 2010
This is how I spend my day on Thursday:
After all the rain, it became clearly evident that a trench needed to be dug through my yard and back into the woods to carry the rain water to the stream in my backyard.
A month or so ago I spoke to the Highway Superindentent. He informed me that there used to be a nice open french drain running through my yard. He knows this because he is the one that dug it 10 some odd years ago. When my house was built my shithead builder thought it would be a good idea to cover this open french-drain / dry brook thingy…effectively changing my driveway in a catch-basin for all the road water run-off. The same shithead builder that botched the Mighty Septic.
So trenching I will go..little by little…
I am not sure which way to go but one thing is for sure, I’ll be digging.
