Dry, Little Driveway, Dry

Mar

We’re having a series of dry days! I can’t wait till the driveway can be graded to get rid of the deep ruts that make driving up and down like a rollercoaster ride. I am SO READY.

    My father-in-law grew up in WV and my husband visited there a lot as a kid. Your pics bring back a lot of memories of his time there. I can’t wait to show him this one. He’s described driveways like this one. That must be one bumpy ride!!

    I’ll bet! I don’t envy the drive over those ruts even when they’re dry.

    The roads are like that around here, too, I did get the van (non 4×4) stuck :o Drove all winter long, didn’t get stuck, but that mud and ruts just sucked me in!

    Phyllis, you can buy one here:

    Warning–it costs about double of what you see it listed for here because the shipping is quite high, for some reason. It’s hard to find the anniversary edition anywhere else, though. You can get the previous version from Amazon–though their price is higher, so by the time you pay shipping there, it’s still about the same as from Ball.

    You have a tractor, don’t you? That’s how I keep the ruts under control on the field roadways where we move big bales — flatten the ruts with the big back tires as they start to dry out, repeat as needed. I’ve done it on the driveway, too, before adding more gravel though not so much lately. Just one iffy spot left now after 5 years of driveway work.

    How do you grade this? Do you have a big tractor with some attachment??

    Shirley, yes, we have a tractor that we use to grade it. I use the word “we” in the royal way here!

    I feel your pain! Our driveway is ruts too right now. Definitely requires a lid on the coffee cup in the morning when I take the kids to the bus stop!!

    I’d give anything to be far enough away from civilization to have a driveway that looks like this. But I don’t drive. Bet my husband would take a different view. If I came to your farm for grading time could I take a turn on the tractor, though? Believe it or not, I’ve driven those a little bit.

    I can’t say for sure from the picture of your road, but I think you (or 52) need to get the tractor out for grading before it dries up too much more!

    …Just seems to me that it would be easier than bone dry grading…But what do I know? LOL! :sheep:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
