Three and Four

Day three and four were the Sabbath and the Queen's birthday respectively. Not a lot of work to be done on those days, and by work I mean fixing the plate tamper (which was not done) so that work could resume right on time (which did not happen.)

It did rain heavily on day three and day four, thus elminating the need to "run a sprinkler" over the newly tamped lot. Why the water? Apparently the water helps "settle" the particles into a solid matrix, which as we know is the name of the game.

The heavy rains also illustrated the importance of the grade, and of proper drainage around a home and property.
