And the rain, rain, rain came down, down, down, and Piglet started bailing..
So, just to make this totally clear.
Pump tracks and rain do not go together.
The rain does help in smoothing and hardening out the pump bumps and berms, but when you are still working on shaping it, all work tends to halt.
The huge Douglas fir that is the centerpiece of my pump track does leave quite a large "dry' area (as in drier) to work in, even during a down pour.
But more damage than good will be done when working in conditions as we have today.
So I am going to start on a new blogject (Yes,I just made up that word), "Pump The Planet".
I hope it will turn out to be a broad view of Pump Tracks and Momentum as I see it, and as others see it.
Tomorrow however leaves some promise for bringing in the dirt for the berms.
And the yard seem to be able to recover from the rain fairly quickly so far.
I do however have a back up plan to deal with drainage if and when needed.
Let's just hope I never have to explain it, which will mean I have to implement it...
