Here in the mountains of West Virgina we have four seasons! This fourth season is a split season. Meaning it spans different parts of the year. You city slickers probably have no idea what it is so I will enlighten you! Mud season starts with cool temps and a lot of rain. Then walk around on bare ground and you have mud. There are several types of mud, you know; there is the loose slushy type all the way up to and including the pull your boot off quicksand! Around the house we just have the loose slushy type. If you want quicksand you need to go up to the spring! In this area there is one and only one thing that can defeat mud season; that is rocks and lots of them, tons in fact. The stone companies love this time of year as hapless victims call for truck loads of stone to fill in the quagmire they used to call a driveway/road! This is the only known thing to combat mud season, we pray for colder weather so the mud will freeze until spring mud season!
