  • Several years ago I began a column: “The other day a co-worker posted on Facebook that it had been the ‘week from hell.’

    “We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad. We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed.

    “Cranky people called, which didn’t help our own crankiness. We scowled. We sulked. We wished we were anywhere but here.

    “It was one B-A-D week.”

    That could be said of the past several weeks, locally and globally.

  • Returning to a flooded site can be quite devastating. Flood damage to your home or office may be quite extensive and overwhelming, but what about your landscape?

    Let us take a look at how we approach our landscape after the waters recede.

    After the floodwaters have receded, the landscape will be covered in thick silt and it may have a raw sewage-like odor, which indicates a lack of oxygen in the soil. Many plants will look dead.
