And no, it's not fun.
Boots stuck in mud. Ugh.

Prior to the arrival of actual mud.
See all those rubber boots?
They get worn a lot.
In February there was about 30" of snow over a ten day period. Now we are warming up with days in the 50s and sun. So guess what?
All of that snow is melting. And I have a dirt drive. A dirt drive that slopes from the lane down to my back door.
It feels like the entire mountain of snow is melting and running down my drive.
This picture doesn't really really show how steep the drive is.
But it's all uphill from here.
The neighbor has taught me how to make little trenches to move the water. That does help with drying things out. But as soon as I move some water, more comes. You can actually hear it burbling away as I dig my little trenches.
Some days I'm needing the Hummer with "for real" four wheel drive just to get out of the drive and down the lane.
The lane has a really low spot also. More mud. Washing the cars is just a joke.
But this week there is nothing but sun forecast. Crossing my fingers that the drive will dry.
And praying that we don't get another 30" of snow.
Shoes are covered in mud.
The deck is covered in mud.
I am covered in mud.
Pray for sun.
too beautiful and too fun*. But don't tell.)
*Except mud season, or when it's dumping snow. But most of the time, pretty marvelous.
