Replacing the culvert!

Yesterday morning, there was a white line and the letters "OUPS" spray painted on the road at the culvert.  Hmmmm, a clue.  Digging....
In the afternoon, Chuck spotted county workers placing orange flags at the culvert.  He went down to talk to the county engineer, and was told they are replacing our culvert.  HOORAY!   A 4ft one was planned, but Chuck lobbied for a 5ft, and it worked, because they arrived this morning with a small dozer, a track hoe, and a 5ft culvert.  When I left at 7:30, they had already begun digging up the road, and plan to have it finished today.
Maybe this means an end to the flooding of our barn!
