    With all the rain here the past few days, the swamp in my back yard has now flooded and pretty much my whole yard is flooded. Now I have ducks, geese, woodchucks, and other water animals swimming and frolicking in my yard. Tis quite site and very fun to ride in with my ATV.

    No I don't have any pictures. It's funny going in your back yard and having ducks and geese swimming around quacking and honking away though. I'm used to the back yard flooding because every few years the swamp overflows due to alot of rain, plus all the snow melting. It's not an every year accurance luckily though. Gotta watch ot for the woodchucks, muskrats, and such, the can be mean if you get too close.

    I don't have a scanner. I did, but it broke, and I have yet to get a new one. It is pretty deep, I'd say about 6 inches to a foot in most places. I haven't been farther out back yet, so it's probably deeper there.

    Stock it with some trout so you can go fishing from the deck/kitchen window! [​IMG]

    So you can answer the question, how much wood can a woodchuck chuck?

    I didn't know a woodchuck could chuck wood.

    I really don't see woodchucks chucking wood, so no I can't answer the question. I do know thet like all kinds of fruit and vegetables, though.

    They are very sneaky animals, that's why I don't know. I caught them carting away some old fruits and vegetables a few times that I threw out for all the wild animals, that's how I knew they liked that. For all I know, they could have a burrow full of chucked wood.

    Actually, the question is how much of StephanA's house can a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    Apparently, the silica thread has fallen on deaf ears here.. There's a solution to your flooding problem here. [​IMG]
