My Neighbor, Li’l Abner – an Update

My Neighbor Across The Street IMGP1950

Honestly – it looks like Dogpatch across the street. The dumpster disappeared quite a while ago but in preparation for our big-ass storm we are getting even as type this, my neighbor erected a couple half-ass erosion prevention screens and ran his drainage hoses from the basement outside. And he left a bunch of extra hose there for good measure.

The erosion screens laid down when the rain started and are now allowing a steady stream of brown water to run across them. D for effort, F for trying to fix it.

Twenty bucks to a bucket of muddy runoff says it will look like this long after the storm passes.

What’s your neighborhood look like?
