Cleaning Up the Driveway

I didn't really have time, and didn't want to do it, but with a huge hailstorm last night and things washed out in places, I decided to just get out there and hit the driveway. So after a couple hours of work, I went out, hooked up the blade, and then started going up and down in places to smooth out the driveway.

It's an interesting challenge, and I like doing it, but it's slow. You can't just race down the driveway, and you have to monitor the blade height constantly. Not that I'm great, but I'm getting better.

This time I worked in small sections, 40-50 ft at a time, trying to cut loose dirt and push it up to the middle. I'm not sure how good a job I did, and I need to drive across it a few times to pack things down. I'm also hoping that it won't rain for a few days and things will bake down and get hard again.

If not, I'll be out there again.
