    Other than a lot of our gravel lane being spread out across the yard, we're not in bad shape here, considering the shape we're in.

    This, yes this right here is how I feel in some of the quarries I work out of. Blech

    I feel your pain. How long does your monsoon season last? We should be switching from torrential downpours once a day to brief showers soon, but who knows in Colorado?

    You need some muck boots, the shiny black ones of my youth are now cute colors and designs and not expensive online!

    Sounds almost as though you don't have to move to live on that boat... just set it in your back yard. ;)
