Sewer Repair

If a photo's worth a thousand words…here's a several-thousand word essay:

Tearing away the (rotten) planter railings.

Let's dig, boys!

Cutting the street open.

The culprit: smashed orangeburg pipe!

Bye-bye, driveway slab!

ker-SPLAT! You know the operator got wet when THAT baby flopped over!

A new poop-pipe!

Tying into the city main line.

Quite an operation.

Almost 6 hours later, and almost done. Amazing.

Gratuitous eye-candy. :-)

Roz is so adorable! As for the plumbing issue, glad to know it went relatively quickly.

"Serious shit" indeed!

Do you even know how exciting it would be if a digger came to our house?

Glad it's nearly done!

Thank you for letting me relive that through least it was a straight, short shot up the driveway. Now the leveling and settling begins and you can live worry free of shit!

That Roz sure is a cutie, can't wait to see you guys again next week.
