December 21, 2006

They've sealed the foundation, but   They're also moving dirt.  I'm not quite sure what they're moving where, but it's clear that dirt has moved since yesterday!

It was raining so hard that Stan didn't get out of the car to take a close-up picture.

I'm not as smart as Stan, so I did get out and traipse through the mud.

The painted tar area is what is new!

The dirt has been moved around a bit--it's getting closer to garage level.

Can we say muddy?  Sure.  I knew we could.

 Not only did my "muddy shoes" get muddy, my jeans got muddy.  So did the clean shoes I tried to change back into.  So did my sweater.

I stopped by to drop off some donuts for the crew--but they weren't there.  It was too muddy to move dirt.  (Or rather, too muddy).  While I was there, the guy in charge of earth movement stopped by to be sure that the utilities had been marked.  He said he'd come back to do the sewer pipes on Saturday.  I gave him the donuts.
