It's about time!
Guess what!?! They are grading the gutters and streets out front. All of Smithton's streets are supposed to get "chip and seal" over this and next Friday and Saturday. We are at the bottom of a hill and over the last ???(MANY!) years we and our neighbors have been the recipients of all the loose gravel that washed down the street from rain storms after they "oiled and chatted" the road. The drainage space between us and our neighbor to the east, that was supposed to take the excess water away from the front of our houses during a storm, was so full of rock, dirt, etc. that it was spilling over into her driveway. She could no longer even park her car in her driveway! They have cleaned most of that out as I am writing this! Now, I HOPE!!! that they get the right kind of stuff down and we don't have to put up with all of that anymore!
