Spring Projects.

The end of last year our sewage line broke. Causing the front yard to be dug up. Now that spring is almost here, it is time to get it back to normal. In the next few weeks we will be having the sidewalk,  grass and the landscaping rocks replaced. We decided that the area next to the house needed to be Rocked. On the the problems we had was the mowers hit the sewage pipe often. this cause some of the problem. Putting stress on the old pipes. to keep this from happening We are landscape that area with river rock.

When they dug up the yard it destroyed the grass, We are having that replace with area Sod. The landscapers we are using we have used before. They sodded the back yard which turned great. Using local sod from local sod farm. Freshly cut.

The sidewalk needs to be totally replaced. It is a Stained one, We are having them mix the stain in the concrete. That way it will not peel, as it does on newly poured Concrete. We learned that several years ago on our driveway.

So the project will start in a couple weeks. I will add some photos then.

The First Real Winter Storm

We were told a Blizzard was on its way. I doubted them. So many times the weather forecaster have predicted weather conditions that never appear in our town. Sometimes north of us and some times south in DC.

Well I will have to admit It looks like we will be getting that Blizzard. This is what we got since yesterday evening.

This is a covered front porch, the steps are not covered

The Porch, the snow was blown in here. This is the covered part

I opened the door, this amount was blown on the porch.

Backyard, it is still snowing.

that is an 18 inch stone wall.

We still have one more day of snow.  Now it is time for Cinnamon Bread and Hot Chocolate. We plan on Hunkering down for the weekend,  Movies and Great Winter Food.
