Driveway Win!

Yesterday morning, Ryan and I woke up to the peaceful pitter patter of rain. It wasn’t nearly as peaceful when we discovered our entire yard was under water. Ryan had to roll his pants up over his knees to wade out to get to work. The dogs were distressed by having no where to take their morning dumps (Henry did scope out a pot of potential paw paws on the porch, but ultimately opted to hold it). I, meanwhile, found cause to be embarrassed. I was on a conference call and completely lost my train of thought in mid-sentence when I saw a bag of our garbage floating down the street.

But there was a victorious moment! Check it out! Thanks to the new DIY Driveway, my car stayed safe and sound. 🙂

Hooray for hard work and helpful neighbors!

P.S. The water was all gone by noon. Jimmie and Henry could not have been more grateful. 🙂

    Wow. I am no stranger to flooding, but that is crazy. At least it didn’t stay around.

    That is awesome! Now all you need is a bridge from the front porch to the new driveway “island”!
