Dunno how the rains have been recently and how they will be for the next several months. But, my lasting late-in-life discovery about Central Jersey, land of so many small farms, is that I missed entirely when growing up there how much rock and gravel went into extensive local, county and state road building just to get the road surfaces a few feet above land that stays wet and puddled for days after rainfall year-round unless drained. Land of 10,000 ponds and bogs and other EPA-protected sites.
