Re: zone map

Marge - Pat across the street has sandier soil! I think they built my
house over an old creek bottom or something. It would account for the
dense clay and the large smooth stones and gravel I dig up all over the
property. Plus whenever the street floods, the run off flows naturally
down my driveway, through the back yard and out toward Main St. I've
designed all the flower beds to redirect this run off in constructive or
harmless fashion of course. It's weird how the soil in just our
neighborhood is so different...
