Machines all over!

We are sort of getting used to the very large backhoe in our side yard. The hole is very large. Our town inspectors came yesterday and told our contractors that the hole was not deep enough. So, more digging. Apparently, our contractors are wondering if the large backhoe is too large. It almost takes up the whole hole. How do you maneuver when you almost take up the whole hole? They discussed bringing some smaller equipment. So, this morning when we were awakened by a truck with two small machines, we thought they were doing what they planned. NO! The town decided to repave the street in front of our house.

Our contractor was excited since they then would not be responsible for hiring a Police Detail for the street. However, the machines all over the place!!!

So far, the very large backhoe is still here moving a large load of sand dumped in the hole this morning, around in the hole. (Maybe making the hole smaller so he can get out?) Then, to my grandson's delight they moved in an orange "tunnel". He was supposed to be getting dressed but just had to stay and look out the window at the "tunnel" Our contractors are being amused while they work.

We still plan on going to NH for Balloon Weekend on Thursday. So, we will probably miss some of the fun here. My daughter and her family will leave on Friday. So, hope for no rain or wind in NH this weekend. We can see first hand the tornado damage in the area. My niece and sister-in-law were just 1 1/2 miles away from the tornado but all are safe.
