Re: pics. to share

Kitty: Thanks for your concern. Have been trying to rest a bit more than
usual since last week as I have been tired since that flu thing or
whatever it was. And with the rain we've been having, I can't work
outside and I really just try to ignore the housework. Have a bunch of
classwork for two courses to catch up so will do that today. Have the
kids inside cleaning their rooms...they have to get that done before
they get to start goofing off for the summer. It's raining hard here
again...rain in the forecast for the next 6 out of 7 days. As for the
sinkhole...yes, it just opened up one day. I am thankful it didn't do it
the weekend before when the kids all had friends over and they were out
at night playing flashlight games in the yard...that could have been
very bad. Tommorrow and Friday I am off to a conference on youth
ministry...should be fun!

How terrible, Melody. And after all your hard work. What, did it just
fall<br>in one day? Or did someone step on it? The only sinkholes I've
known about<br>were under a couple of our city streets. I'd be suprised
(to say the least)<br>to have one next to my house. I think you're right
not too do any digging,<br>but get someone who knows what they're doing
to fix ita nd get the job<br>inspected so you know it is done right.
Even 6 feet is too close to the<br>house, but the gas line, wow, you are
right. Scary.<br><br>Take time for yourself and get some rest. Running
yourself into the ground<br>is when mistakes
happen.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:

AM<br>Subject: Re: [CHAT] pics. to share<br><br><br>&gt; I'm feeling
much better now, thanks Pam! Kids are out of school for the<br>&gt;
summer after today so I'll be on a reduced

sleep schedule anyway. With<br>&gt; the sink hole problem, the biggest
thing is how close that darn thing is<br>&gt; to the main gas
line...about 18 inches. I'm worried any further digging<br>&gt; in that
area will cause significant problems. Thinking I'm gonna be<br>&gt;
moving the water feature to a new locale and filling the whole thing
in<br>&gt; with sand, capping it with cement, and covering it with soil.
The actual<br>&gt; hole is about six feet from the foundation so that's
not a big concern.<br>&gt; Geesh...just when that water feature was
looking so darned pretty, too!<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;

maybe you could use the sinkhole as part of&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt; the
water display?&lt;br&gt;&gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt; Donna&lt;br&gt;&gt;

&gt; plus at the nice<br>&gt; little sink hole that
developed&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; last week and took out&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
my<br>&gt; beautiful little water feature, here is the
link:&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;


&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; The sinkhole appears to be from an old,

&gt;<br>&gt; capped cistern and is&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; unfortunately not
covered by insurance.<br>&gt; Sits only&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; less than 18
inches&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; from our gas line so our<br>&gt; only option
is to refill&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; the hole and cap it&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
properly this<br>&gt; time. Then we have to rebuild the&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; water feature...all<br>&gt;<br>&gt; of&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; which
takes time we don't really have right now in&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
the<br>&gt; middle of ball&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; season. Am way behind in
emails again but I'll<br>&gt; try&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; to get
caught&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; up...got sick and ended up in the ER
one<br>&gt; night in&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; the past
week...viral&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; thing going around. Had<br>&gt; some
pretty nasty storms a&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; couple of nights&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; ago...tornado<br>&gt; warnings for a few hours; hay barn
a&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; couple miles away

got&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; blown down and some trees damaged in the
countryside&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; but<br>&gt; otherwise&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
nothing more than some heavy rains. Hope all of<br>&gt;
you&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; are well.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; Who on the list lives out<br>&gt; Denver way?
Betsy? Have a&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; friend out in Denver&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
who is new<br>&gt; to gardening and is feeling a bit&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
frustrated with her&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; efforts; I think she
needs a bit more local advice&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; than I can<br>&gt; give
her&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; from Iowa. TIA!&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt;
