Oakland Excavation - Day One

And the excavation formally begins.

Today I was shocked at the appearance of the site. They had taken out two of the planter mounds and rocked a work pad. It looked so different, and yet so professional.

The excavation went very well, and we would have been done at a good time. Except that our concrete pumper, which normally uses two pumps, was only operating on one. So instead of a constant flow of concrete, it was spitting.

Finally after about half of the slot was filled, we let the trucks free fall into the pit.

That helped a lot.

Tomorrow we move to the opposite end of the excavation for an other slot. Hopefully, tomorrow will go even better than today.
