The result of the ice we got last week is that outside grade level was about four inches above the garage slab . We then got a warm front from down south with a mess of rain and my garage flooded .
I had about an inch of slush throughout the whole thing . Took us most of last week to clean out the depressing mess .
Tonight they promise more rain. . . SO . . .
I spent three hours yesterday smashing the ice and frozen ground outside with an axe to create some ditches to give the water a place to go .
Painful . . .
Exhausting . . .
And the result is an ugly mess
Three more hours of toil and pain today to divert more flow around the back of the garage .
Water seems to be flowing briskly
