In the ongoing battle of Rebecca vs. The Yard Service (Yard Service: 2, Rebecca: 0), I have come up with a creative tactic (not a "strategy", mind you) to keep the Mighty Downspout Extender attached to the house.
But not only did I permanently affix the Extender, I have also Completely Eliminated the source of the struggle by removing all grass underneath it.
Rather than leave a naked patch of dirt, I've made a little dry stream bed to handle the water runoff.
New Score - Yard Service: 2, Rebecca: 1
