Good to hear there's progress. Hope all you see till next December are flurries.Wowza, hope it melts quickly !!
Wore sneakers today, first time since December.
I can see the back stacks, and almost have a clear path to some of it . Still laying the ash from the stove on the layers of ice.
Waiting for the weather report, next week is not looking so lovely.
Ice blockage finally melted and the water has receeded. Was starting to think I had a collapsed drain line.Had to use my tractor with the plow on it to move water (from the rain and melt) from one part of my driveway to another. One sewer line is frozen preventing water from going down and therefore backing up into my garage. Never thought I'd have to use the tractor like that! Also had to use a sledge and a chisel to unblock the other drain into the street.
That has also crossed my mind. Can't be too careful but I don't think that's it. I know where my current is and the overflow is supposed to be closer to the street and not under the drive. Driveway has not moved in the 50+ yrs since the house was built.Do you know where your present cesspool is? Could this be an old abandoned one? Be careful.
Sink holes are not uncommon on LI.That has also crossed my mind. Can't be too careful but I don't think that's it. I know where my current is and the overflow is supposed to be closer to the street and not under the drive. Driveway has not moved in the 50+ yrs since the house was built.
So far I've lost about 18" circle of asphalt about 10-12" at the deepest point I'd guess. But it started smaller and has been growing some even though we've been staying off it. Major heaving and freezing so during the recent thaw maybe flowing water displaced the underlay, I guess, maybe, IDK.
Holy Smoly that is crazy. I had to look up the location as I don't have every small Italian town committed to memory. I was expecting it to be in the far north, part of the Italian Alps but not south-east of Rome!!Think Boston got it bad? Capracotta Italy just set what is likely the all time record for 24hr snowfall. 100"!!
Nope, been other wise occupied with Mom.Carumba! Tell me about it. Did you resolve that roof leak?
