Refrigerator root cellar setback

refrigerator root cellar wash outThe refrigerator root cellar suffered a set back last night during a heavy down pour.

What happened? Did the fridge try to float up due to the rain?

We were careful to put it in a spot with good drainage, so it clearly wasn't standing water. I think it was the unconsolidated fill dirt behind the fridge filling with water and pushing it forward, a lot like a mudslide. Drat!
