Mixed blessings

The good news is that the anxiously-awaited PowerGrader has arrived and is ready for pickup at the trucking depot in Roanoke.

And it's raining. According to the talking heads it will rain tomorrow as well. And part of Thursday.

Once it stops raining, we will need three or four days without moisture for the driveway to dry out enough to scrape and grade.

Damn.
