We built our house in the mud. The newly disturbed ground was saturated with torrential rains that started the first June and did not stop until the last of August 1989. When we walked across the yard, the mud would build up on the bottom of our boots, and by the time we got to where we were going we were at least 6 inches taller. Bob has hauled gravel by the pickup loads for the last 20 years into this yard, and we still have mud!!
We have five seasons in Alaska. Spring thaw, Breakup mud, Summer, Fall and Winter.
