Some of you are wondering what we are doing. Well, one of the things is we are re-contouring our presently too-steep driveway into a kinder, gentler slope that eases onto a flat parking area.
This is because of the slipping 'incident' we had this past winter. The particular 'incident' I am referring to was when my Xterra that was parked at the top of the driveway, slid itself very slowly down the icy hill and stopped about 4 feet from the MO-bile. We heard some noise from inside and looked out the window to see it happening. Trust me, one feels pretty helpless watching one's vehicle approaching, driver-less, straight towards the house. This was rather convincing evidence that the driveway was too steep.Of course, there were a few other slipping incidents worth mentioning...but that's another story.
So the next time you come to visit there will be a lovely, flat area to park and turn around on with beautiful rock wall and a set of wide stone stairs leading to the front door.You won't have to worry, and we won't either, about your vehicle slip,sliding down on its own into the kitchen.
