Progress!

Well, we had progress today. We thought since no one came yesterday to start on the water/sewer lines, they would probably come today. Started by getting things put back in place in the motorhome and getting things swept and cleaned in the ritual we do every time we move. The plumbers came at 9:30 and by the way they started working, we figured we'd be done by 1-2:00. Not to be. The workers started digging while the head honcho left. They got done digging by 11 a.m. and sat and waited for 1 1/2 hours until the head honcho got back. He picked them up and they took off for lunch. They got back and put in most of the water lines. Then the HH left again and was gone for 1 1/2 -2 hours. He had to get more parts. He finally arrived back around 3 I think and they laid the sewer pipe, put in the spigots and tested them. All is well. Finally got around to filling in the trenches and put the gravel back in place. By 4:30 they were paid and gone and we moved Phaeton Place back in position. You really cannot tell much difference except that the sewer hookup is there and we have a couple water faucets on the sides of the pad.

Mom had invited us for supper since Phaeton Place was all closed up. It was great for us to be able to go "out" for dinner. We got the motorhome moved back and most everything set up before time to eat. We are just relaxing this evening and watching CSI.

Yesterday we had about the hottest day since we have been here and then today we had the coolest. I think it made it to 70, but it has been quite chilly all day. I imagine the workers were much more comfortable digging that trench in the cooler temperatures.

Hopefully tomorrow we will get our electric meter installed. . . but I'm not holding my breath.

Till next time. . .
