Looks like a flat lander problem! LOL Sure don't have to worry about none of that up here on these bluffs, only have to worry about tipping over or sliding down into the woods, nuttin serious.

We're east of the Red River Valley, but same problem here. Ground is frozen solid, as is the driveway culvert. No way to get anything in to thaw the culvert either. So now water is flowing over the still-frozen drive, right at a 90° sharp curve. A couple more days and we'll be having to leave a truck on the other side of the culvert so we can get to town. Hoping to get a new culvert installed before next winter.

Now kruse, ya know I'm a card carrying member of the FFA........fathers farm alone. ......moved the backhoe over Saturday from the hydraulic repair guy, mooched a ride from a nieghbor passing by. Then hauled the skidder from the other farm. Drove each machine to the site then walked back up to the barns you see in the background. Except, you have to follow the creek south about a quarter mile to the road, then over the bridge down the road . I guess I need the cardio workout.

Doesn"t your county have steamers that they bring out to thaw the culverts? Haven"t needed them here for a few years, but ours (Meeker) did that quite often. Road crews reported where water was running over the road, and the steamers showed up.

The county came out one year and did a little out by the main (gravel) road, but they won't come do our culvert. They couldn't get into it anyhow as the culvert was damaged long before we bought the place more than 15 years ago. I can't even stick a pipe in more than 3'.

Our nearest neighbor (and then township manager) promised to get us a new culvert. This was when we had the JD 4010 as well as a 3-pt backhoe. Every year for 3 years I kept asking, and he kept promising. Finally the JD wouldn't start anymore, so sold the backhoe and later the tractor. The following year, THEN he came up and offered to get that long-promised culvert! ...This is a guy who runs this area like his own 1-man mafia.
