A Day of Waiting

Workers were here this morning and began doing what the contract said they should do. Before long the inspector came to the door to be sure I was satisfied with the way the work was progressing. He told me that the district manager was having a "pop-in meeting" with the worker's superintendent on our front lawn. The inspector and I talked for a few minutes and then he went back outside to look at the work being done. That gave me the chance to sneak a peek out the living room window to see what was happening out there. I don't know what was being said but the district manager was NOT smiling and the super was just looking nervous and nodding his head. I really don't know what transpired but I do know that everything went smooth as silk so far as the work is concerned. They didn't finish today so will be back to finish up tomorrow morning. When they are done the inspector will check the work and he will install extra floor supports. (As you know we have some heavy stuff (tanks) in this house.) It will be good to be through with this!

I haven't done anything today except wait for the "other shoe" to fall but it didn't. We'll see how the last part of the work goes tomorrow.

By Monday life should be back to normal - well as normal as it ever is. Have a good evening. If you are facing heavy rains and flooding I hope you don't experience loss of property or injury.

Good luck tomorrow Mary, I know you'll be glad when it's all done.
We are expecting rain, some of the schools in a town about an hour away have closed schools tomorrow because school buses can't get down the dirt roads.
