Our little driveway has suffered some trauma of late. Between the rain, snow and all the heavy loads of equipment and materials associated with the building projects, it is a little "soupy". This is not a good sign going into winter, when moisture will not evaporate and ice threatens. So, once the building projects are finished, we will take wheelbarrow and trailer loads of our demolition rubble down the driveway to fill the "soupy" parts. This will ensure that the car can make it up any ice on the last little rise to the house and that the area around the house remains stable.
