(That hole is/was 18 inches deep...)Mind you I'm VERY glad for the rain, I just wish we'd gotten the beams cemented in first. Last Friday I spent the evening hours bailing out the holes so the can dry and be ready to cement. It didn't take to long, and friend Zack helped bail out water too.
(There are three post holes along that section of wall... UGH!)
None the less we got the holes dried out and went about our weekend. Saturday all was well the sun was shining, birds were chirping, Walt Disney was rolling over in his grave and I? I was sitting at the kitchen table reading... isn't that always how it goes? When they talk to victims they were almost religiously "sittin' at their kitchen table" (or on the john) when the sky suddenly turned black!
( Aw, #@*$...)
Things were very still for a few seconds- then the clouds started to POUR and you guessed it...
(*Sigh* So I had to bail the holes our AGAIN!)
Also, I have just given up on the "grounds" of the Casablanca looking presentable until after construction is complete. To try and divert water away from the foundation a shallow trench was dug along the back yard.
(Grrrrrrr!)I am going to wait until we have no rain in the forecast before I bail them out one more final time. And I hope right after that we can FINALLY get the concrete poured! I am ready to get this project underway and DONE! haha
I've also decided that I'll provably end up re-landscaping next spring to better accommodate all the new changes. Heck I might even sell some lawn furniture off! No Michael, not the silver pieces. Any who until that happy day when things return to normal just picture this...
(Ah yes, that's more like it!)
