Adios to the Driveway Lake

Our driveway is a fairly long gravel drive with a dip and a 90 degree turn about halfway along. Every time it rains this dip becomes our own personal lake. And given the fact that we live in the Pacific Northwest, that's a lot of rain and a perpetual lake. Also, when it snows or is icy, trying to get up the dip and then the slope of our driveway without getting a running start is impossible. This year I finally got tired of it and called a company to come fill in our lake. They brought in about 3 dump truck loads of gravel to raise the dip by about 2 feet to meet the driveway on either side. So far I think the fix is working! It rained aardvarks and elephants the other day and there's no lake! That's one problem to move on to the rest of the list.
