I had to move the lambs today after a combination of melted snow and rain flooded half the barn. Luckily the other half is still dry so they are ok for now. It's too bad there's no easy way to raise a whole barn up a couple of feet. The basement was also flooding, so cleaning that up, while Dane repaired the gutters, took much of the day. One gutter was full of ice so was not functioning and the other was completely flattened and had to be replaced. The water was coming down pretty fast through the rock wall and under the basement door. When I opened the door to see what was wrong a small wave came in. Now it's pretty dry after much shop vacing and towels.
