No more peace and quiet

March 10th, 2016 at 10:47 am

Unexpectedly, the driveway paver's crew has arrived. They weren't supposed to be here til tomorrow at the earliest, but I got a call from the lost crew searching on the street for my house. The house numbers are all out of order so I had to guide him here as I watched out the window.

I moved my car and they already started digging up at the bottom of the drive where it meets the road, with a small backhoe. Looks like 2 huge dump trucks parked on the road for all the debris.

It's kind of a bad spot as I live at a very sharp curve in the road, so if people were speeding around the curve, they won't see til last minute that they need to go into 1 lane with all the trucks parked there. I hope they finish before a passing cop notices.

I'm just a little nervous about their pulling up asphalt near the garage and stone walls without damaging either.

This is just phase one of having my driveway redone with part asphalt, part pavers. The crew look like they're from Louisiana or someplace. Hopefully the guy I dealt with will show up soon.

I am totally distracted now. I'll be glad when the Macedonian masons are here to do top 2/3 of the driveway. Where they will repave, the slope, there's less chance of anything getting damaged besides the lawn.

    Well, as they say, you gotta break some eggs to make an omelet! It'll be worth it.
