Can you dig it, baby?
Apparently they can. The city's crew demonstrated that shovelry isn't dead after all: since yesterday they've managed to open up nearly 30 percent of the trench, about 50 feet, no small accomplishment on a day which topped out at 97 degrees, three above the previous record. Large piles of rust-red dirt this is Oklahoma, after all are heaped on the western edge, and the ubiquitous yellow tape is looped around the weird elm/mulberry hybrid on the far side of the driveway; since they've already dug past it, I have to assume it will be spared. They haven't reached the backyard trees yet, though.
Next report, I presume, will be Monday evening, for those of you who are utterly transfixed by the very idea of sewerblogging.Posted at 7:02 PM to Surlywood
