October through December, 2012

In mid-October we finally got a rainstorm that wet down the driveway enough to compact the road mix put down in early June. The first step was to use a road grader to “blade” the drive to remove the wash-board created by us driving up and down the uncompacted road mix. Then, a vibratory roller was used to compact the road mix. The vibratory roller is the white machine parked next to the Carriage House. When it is running, the ground shakes like a minor earthquake.
