We have been moving the mountain behind our house in order to build a root cellar there. I guess I didn't realize how much dirt there would be to move to build this thing. We still have use of the company dozer so that makes the task a lot cheaper by not hiring the work done. With all the soil disturbed now it is raining. That should make for an interesting day tomorrow to say the least. The root cellar will measure 8ft X 12ft when we are finished with it. That will be ample room to store canned goods and root veggies and still be able to use it for a storm shelter as well. Just makes a fellow feel a little safer when tornado warnings are issued. Hopefully I can document a picture account of things as they progress along on this project. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
