The yard is a swamp, but you know, it hasn't stopped the grass from growing and more rain is scheduled over the next week. Yesterday was the only possible day to try to cut the lawn. It wasn't pretty. Still wet. Very muddy. And are newly serviced mower lost its power driven wheels (or whatever you call it) 3/4 of the way through the job. It became a full-on push mower for the last quarter of the cut. I suppose it is a good thing I work out.
But the other thing the rain has done is made the hillside, on the street where we live, collapse.
Granted, it is not happening in our yard, and exists a few houses down, but still it ain't purdy.
Obviously, we walked down to check it out and take pictures.
....and as we walked past our yard, you know the hill with all the accidents, I came across this:
Crazy. I'd say 'how did I miss this one', but we both have jobs and cannot be on car crash duty all day long, every day. I suppose we'll have to go and clear this shit up too. There's a niche business out there from someone who wants to clean wrecked auto parts out of people's yards.
I'd do it myself, but it would just look like some kind of money laundering scheme.
