Our impassable driveway

We're putting in a water line that will lead up to our new hen coop.

We’re having a water line installed to the site of the new hen coop. This is what our driveway looks like this morning. Last evening it was completely blocked with a large truck, a dumpster and a Bobcat.

I had to pick up two sixth graders at the middle school and bring them back home last night, but I couldn’t use the driveway. I put the truck into four wheel drive, drove it across our field, down the ditch, and then up onto the street on a driveway our neighbor uses to get equipment into the field. I could hear the truck throwing bits of mud off its tires as I sped down the country road.

I came back at sunset with two sixth grade boys in the truck. Construction equipment, lit up and busy digging in the growing darkness, looked dramatic as we bumped through the field again. It was probably the coolest trip to town and back that I have ever made.
