Default A little bit of rain(pictures)





Here are a few pics from this afternoon.

Ditches are full and flowing.









This is a waterway we made last spring. Seems to be working.



We put in this structure two years ago and it is doing its job as well.





This terrace is working well. Holding back the water and soil.

That's a lot better than watching your soil run down to the gulf of Mexico.

Had to turn around on my way in to work because of the flash flooding. Got to work, and lightning hit the plant, taking it down.

WE don't do any erosion control. Everything is sub-let. That way we hold no responsibility. Besides, for what Stevens and Soil-tek will do it for its not worth the head ache.

There is a 'small' creek behind our apartment complex which is now turning into a damn river. It's got about 15 feet to go until it's in our living room.. This blows.
