Winter continues

Deep ruts in the mud are filled with slush. Less than good tires makes getting in and out a little scary. So far I haven't been stuck probably because there is still frozen ground under the mud. My boot prints will probably be frozen into the slush as the temperature is dropping.

Rain and melting snow on the field across the road drain into the ditch then runs under the road to a little pond - behind the bushes on the right. Several times each year there is enough runoff to fill the pond which overflows onto the driveway.

The water runs along the driveway until it gets to a low spot where it crosses the neighbors' yard and heads toward my barn.

Before it gets to the barn it veers again alongside the trees.

Eventually it empties into the large pond on our side of the tracks.
