    I got the ladder out & checked the rain gutters & down spouts.
    4 out of 5 were choked with leaves in the first goose neck down from the gutter.
    I have a few buried pipes that run the water away form the house , ends of them were plugged too.

    Just a "re-minder" & on the "To Do" list.

    Yeah, I need to get up there in the AM. We are getting 2" of rain on Wed and I know I have leaves up there. I have wire mesh in the drain to prevent leaves from getting in the down spouts. All my spouts run underground and I don't want leaves down there!

    Good idea, I have some rabbit cage wire I could cut pieces & fit it right in there.
    Thanks
