Today, with Tessa Branyan, one of our wonderful volunteers, we worked on some of these areas. We cleared drop boxes and moved soil around them to create pathways that we hope will help the water to run into them. Loose dirt cleared from the drains was used to fill up some of the holes where unwanted moisture is collecting. These measures will hopefully lessen the damage from the next rainstorm.

There is plenty more work to be done, but as the temperature climbed, I decided it was best left for another morning.
