How many of us are ready for the snow and ice to finally be gone? Did I hear a unanimous, “All of us!” shouted at computer screens everywhere?

We look forward to having white Christmases, wearing warm fuzzy clothes, sledding, drinking cocoa by a fire, and taking in the majesty of beautiful fresh snow blanketing the homes and landscape all around us, but then reality sets in when it stays past its welcome. Personally, anything before December 15th and anything after January 10th is past its welcome.

We are rounding the corner, according to the prediction of the well-known groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, who heralds early spring or extended winter.

Information – Mudslides and the danger caused

Mudslides -  Dam-it Dams BlogMudslides

A natural occurrence that will become more and more prevalent in the upcoming months is a mudslide. Mudslides are also called landslides, mud flows, and flow slides.

The cause of this event is heavy rains, melted snow and ice, over-topping, and high levels of flooded ground water interacting with the stability of the upper layers of soil and greenery by essentially creating a slurry of the soil and allowing gravity to do its thing.
