It's Raining It's Pouring!

So last Thursday there was the biggest most random huge rain storm. It only lasted about an hour but it did some serious damage. McKenna wanted to go out and stand in it. That lasted about two seconds.
This is what was left of our driveway after an hour.

These were huge rivenes dug by the water coming off the hill. Those are about a foot deep.
This is what happened in our backyard that we just barely planted and we hadn't got a chance to get our rock wall up yet and this is what happened. Some of those cuts in the dirt are like three feet in.
It was a sad day. Friday Travis and his dad ended up rebuilding a whole new road. Not fun!

So Sorry!! That stinks! Luckily you have a handy dandy husband who loves to play in the dirt! :) Hopefully it doesn't take him too long to get things back in order. Good luck Travis!

OH NO. I could cry that much for both of you and for all the work that will have to be done to fix it. Man....I'm so sorry. That is stinky.
Love ya,
PS McKenna's pictures are so cute. Sounds like you had a fun date.

When it rains it pours...We can always use the moisture, but why does it have to leave damage. Hope it was an easy fix for ya.
