|We are going to put down gravel so there is no mud on the way to the root cellar.|
Late that afternoon I did get outside and shoveled dirt away from the cellar area. It doesn't look like it rained but it really did. I moved as much dirt as I could over next to the house. The water running off the roof for the last 80 years has caused the dirt level to drop within three feet of the house. I want to fill all that in and raise the level up near the house. I got an hour of digging in before dinner. Between cleaning up Sarah's room and the digging I made some good progress.
