We Need A Break.....
We have had a little too much rain so far this spring. The photo above is in an area of St. Louis that I can't remember ever having flood problems before. Last spring we had flooding also, and large trees were falling over because of the ground being so soft and not being able to support their weight. So far this season I haven't heard of anything like that happening. But then again I have not been watching the news on a daily basis.
This photo is a sad story because the developer of this subdivision did not install the proper drainage systems, and you can see the results. I heard on the news that these people have been waiting for at least 3 0r 4 years to get this issue resolved. Whenever it rains like it has been it takes days for the water to get out of the street. They have been getting the run around about who is responsible for the problem and how it is going to get taken care of. What a mess! I just read more about this and it just makes me wonder why anything would have to take this long to get resolved. I am not so sure I would have that much patience if I were the owner of one of these homes.
This is our pool that I have only gotten to swim in once so far. Rain rain go away.......come back again on an August day.
