City Work!

A few people have asked about the garden and what the city has done on our street. We went out and took pictures tonight. This is what our yard still looks like.

Under this plywood is the start of the catch basin they are building. It is a hole about 5x7 feet and 5-6 feet deep. There is also one across the street from us.

As you can see, we still have the beautiful orange and white barricades in our front and side lawn. They don't seem to stay here very long when they work on it.

We are hoping that some of our drainage problem in the yard will be taken care of by the new catch basin.

They have moved up the street quite a ways now. They are crossing back over to the other side to put in another catch basin by the house that is causing all the trouble.

I bet you'll be glad when this is done. Hopefully it will control some of the drainage problems. Our city workers have one speed: very slow!!
