5 men and a little hole

So the other day I came home from work and our entire street was blocked off. No warning just suddenly can’t go down the street. Then a backhoe and several work trucks showed up. They started digging.

It was kind of funny to watch four men standing around in the pouring rain talking to a hole. Every once and a while they would throw a huge wrench or something down in the hole.

Eventually tools started flying out of the hole like popcorn and this fellow with the yellow slicker emerged. They pulled a ten foot ladder out and started to fill the hole again.

IMG_2617Pretty soon it was just the backhoe and the guy in the slicker. They had done the majority of the work by the way.
