Well we have certainly gotten a quick introduction to the rural life! In the last 24hrs, we have lost power 3x, been hailed on repeatedly, nearly had the house flood, and have had more close lightning strikes in 24hrs than we did in 13 years in McKinney!
Today saw the kids and I, trying to divert the river Nile (kids nickname for the creek that suddenly formed in our back yard) from flooding the back bedroom of the house. The French drain was overwhelmed, by at least 2" of runoff. We diverted, I dug a trench, we broomed water...And thankfully, the house stayed dry. We have a bit of dirt work to do I guess!
Tomorrow there will be a storage unit run to go get the generator. Tonight was a "planned" power outage of about 90 min. Yesterday was about 45 min, and a short outage too. Time to get some more auxiliary power packs got phones and such.
It will take a little time to get it all sorted out. To get the landscaping planned out. Some of it we can do, some may get hired out. But it will get done. You can count on it!
