Irene

We’re fine, the house is fine and the driveway did remarkably well considering the amount of rain. We didn’t even lose any trees. One of the advantages of being uphill, no flooding rivers to worry about. We’re just glad we didn’t get the high winds.

Others were not so lucky. The photo below was of the Walloomsac river in Bennington, VT near our apartment. Many houses were flooded and buildings and rivers washed away.

    Hello Larry,

    I’m glad to hear the rain and run-off did not give you any problems. If you haven’t done so yet, It would be prudent to install a swale on the upslope side of the house to divert the run-off away from the North wall.

      Hi Jim, we have an excellent excavator. The fact that we did not have any water problems as a result of Irene is directly attributable to Joe. He does excellent work.
