Minor earthworks to avoid major water ponding.

Another ridiculous rain storm Friday and Saturday had me create some more minor earthworks.

This time, I created a small swale/stream to drain water away from the large pond created by the roof deck rain water draining down near the basement door. 

I also covered up the window well as per Jim's suggestion with a tyvek shed.

Small stream [on the left] created to the drain away the water.

Mystery hole that appeared
when I created a swale to take away
water. The water just drained into this hole.
Is it an old coal mining exploration hole?
A natural occurrence? Or something made by
an animal?
