I took theses pictures yesterday morning when I was coming home from taking the kids to school. I have talked to several city officials and they claim that since our property is so low, that there is nothing they can do. I beg to differ, and I will prove it once MY family gets done with all the work. Sad, isn't it?
Part of the problem is on the other side of the blook, the ditch is diverting all the water there down to here. We are in the process of fixing that, and digging the entire ditch out by hand, moving all the dirt in wheelbarrows. The guy that owns the place across the street from this picture is digging out his ditch, something the city said didn't need done, and he discovered the culvert under the road is plugged. REALLY????? Go figure. I'll keep you posted on our process.
