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)
