    Hurricane Irene swamped the duck's pen and their house, but fortunately... they're ducks. As soon as I opened the door, they went from this pond to another pond to play in. They're happy now, and the water has receded again.

    Nah, Irene left it messier than they ever did. There's 2" deep silt in the house and around it. Hoping the grass grows up through it and stabilizes it before too long.
