It was a slow and chilly morning but things finally warmed up enough that I could continue doing some of the drainage work outside, picking up from where I left off last week.

I decided to start with the laying of the 4" socked pipe along the back (that big rolled pile shown in that last entry), installing it along the ditch I'd dug years and years ago.  There was a drainpipe from the gutters along the front of my mother's apartment, so I decided to route that water to the fastest exit, which turned out to be coincident with the 4" socked pipe I was running from up behind the house proper.  That was only a 3" connection, but fortunately I had several Y's so I could tie the 3" and 4" pipes together.  Once I dug out the run for the 3" pipe and then made sure it was properly sloped (so the water would flow away from Tanglewood) I then continued on out away from the house and towards the drop down towards the creek.

That took most of the day, getting the run properly sloped, but once I did attaching up all the pipe was easy.  After that it was just a matter of filling in the run.

Since it was coming up on nightfall I only got part of the run filled in, but some of it was done at least.  A lot of the dirt I'd made piles out of years ago I was finally able to put back where it came from!

Tomorrow I'll fill in the rest of the run going towards the back of the house, then start working towards the downhill side to connect this run to the pipe down the road.

Slowly but surely!

Looking down towards the creek and the pipe buried there. You can see my portable water tank there to the right.
The as yet unburied pipe heading towards the back side of the house. It's hard to see but there's a big pile of dirt that will be tossed onto that pipe shortly.
The pipe coming down from that run of gutters. It runs into the ground and connects up to the 4" pipe shown in the last pic.
