It’s not as bad as it sounds.  It’s in the driveway.

We’d been noticing that the gravel on parts of the driveway would disappear into the mud.  This morning, Bettie drove me to work on her way to the old house to paint, and to supervise a repair man.  We both saw the places in the new snow where it was darker – water seeping up and melting the snow.

Bummer.  More work that we hadn’t planned for.  Nothing critical, but there will be muddy places in the driveway until we get it fixed.
