So I mentioned that the hillside behind our house needs to be surveyed. Odds are we will need to invest in a huge ass retaining wall to keep it secure. I prefer to do this sooner than later because I don't want to spend my already sleepless nights worrying if we'll wake up in a house boat. Tom and I were discussing this and at one point his response was, "The hillside's fine. It hasn't ever slid in the past."
The absurdity of his statement left me speechless.
But not for long.
I then said, "I'm no Geo-tech, but I'm fairly certain the SAME hillside can't slide more than once."
