What could make me this happy?…

You would never guess it !…

We ave been asking and explaining how the end of our drive-way has sunk… due to one time being flooded in this area…

We called… and called… and called…

They would come outstand around for a day… doing nothing!…jim0038

and then shovel a little dirt herea little therex12768890 and say its fixed!…

NO!…

Last year… MSD… Metropolitan Sewer District… came out and evaluated the ditches and driveway entrances to our homes… All along our road… the ends of my neighbor’s drive-ways got torn out and replacedk5174974

but, not ours!…

What was going on?… k13109428

We called… and called… and called…

k6053207k6053208k6053207

wanting some answers

They finally came out last year in the Fall… This has now been several years… and barely listened to us…

They seem to have their own way of doing things… and of course on their schedule

They would be pushing some more dirt around… x19605316

and this Spring… actually a week ago… they did come out

My husband proceeds to tell them water is catching at the end of our drivewayBAD!… and pushing dirt will not fix it!… Our driveway needed to be raised where it sank… MSD’s responsibility…

and you know what happened…

Within 5 minutes the young new guy in charge totally agreed with us and said it would be replaced

He asked, “Have you been waiting for this to be done for a long time?”… like he knew!…k4972447

Probably by the smile on my face k13518452  and my husband’s sigh of relief… x13414909

I could have kissed his face… but, opted for a high-five!… k9373657

It was torn out starting that very day… and by the end of the next day… we had a new driveway entrance… and done with perfection…

Smooth except for a slight indention down the middle where the neighbor kid rode his bike on it that afternoon after it was poured… and YES… there were cones all around it!…
