Again the ground is wet with last night’s rain, water collecting in the deep ruts left from last fall’s waterline project. We’ve begun to repair the sinking trenches, starting on the east side of the schoolhouse where the damage was the least. Yesterday I saw grass spikes coming up where John seeded. Promising. We're hoping the county will fill the ditch that now crosses the road causing everyone to slow down when driving past the school house. Everyday I hear the 4 thumps of cars taking the ditch one wheel at a time. We will continue to work on the rest and be grateful for our fabulous water presser. But just now, the left over rain glitters on the grass and puddles in the holes making pools for animals and birds and a mud bath for every tire.
