Both ElderSon and SonofV live in Rochester.

So. Much. Rain.

Not especially stormy, just. . . jfc. pounding rain. It's literally pounding the stain off the deck. I've had to reinforce the driveway with a couple more tons of gravel.

the deck, powerwashed by god

the driveway, mid patch, mid batch. I only feel comfortable loading 3/4 ton at a time (and unloading it a bucket at a time).

I know the pain, the last place I lived was clay that turned to mud if you spit on it. Every summer we'd call the man to dump 25 ton of stone on the driveway. Then spread it by hand because a wire over the driveway prevented him from spreading it with the truck.
