Another 300 gallons

Alright! We're actually starting to see some bits of land poking up through our lake :)  Getting really tired of baling out the trenches every hour though. Of course, this is just the surface water for now... you still sink about 6" into the muck if you step down in the wrong place. At least the weather was cooperating with us a little, it only rained for about two hours this morning and was bright and sunny the rest of the day. Don't know how much of the drainage is due to our efforts or the sun... but I'm not complaining either way.

Here's some videos of the rain and our dog Ripley playing in the mud... enjoy   (see?!?! I provide pics AND video sometimes)

Looks like Ripley is really trying to help out. Too cute. Love the new layout. Keep up the hard work. I can't wait to read about your nice warm cozy first winter in the cabin.

I've seen dogs trained to shepherd, to drive, to guide. I've seen dogs guard and attack but I've never seen a dog build canals and irrigation ditches. Must be some kind of German breed what with the engineering background :-)

LOL Tom - I think it's her combo of Alaskan and Japanese. Alaskan = creative problem solving with minimal resources, just "git 'er dunn". Japanese = anything you can make, I can improve :D

Looks to me like Ripley's been kept out in the woods for too long and has "gone 'round the bend"!

The new layout is very nice - congrat's.
