Ever added water to dry clay? That is my backyard. We’re having trouble growing anything in it, so a section is just dirt. Yesterday we got some light snow/rain. (Doesn’t rain much here, snows yearly.) Now my backyard area is one huge mud puddle. Over the summer I spent hours trying to re-level it for landscaping preparation, but it was like chiseling bricks. Now I’ll just run a rake or something over it and it will be good for the summer – if the kids stay off. I guess a little rain is more powerful than I am. Should have used water over the summer, but the mess is too much for me.
