Day 244, 29 June 2013

            Someone has to pick up the slack since Ms Demeanor decided to take a well deserved vacation from her blog How To Build A Substation. A slight hum can be heard from the red machinery warming up. A line runs from the work truck generator to power the beast. The digging of dirt has continued in the interim resulting in a pit running about 50 feet long, 3 feet deep and 3 feet across lining the metal (retaining) wall. A good portion of the bottom section of the steel wall has been painted safety orange. The bulldozer sits quietly at the southern end of Glenwood avenue.

               A few hours later came the ear splitting noise of powerwashing? of the metal wall. The worker is wearing earphones used the red machine and blue cherry picker in the pit to work (?powerblast) on the wall. Just added picture of this very loud work. It is at the very end. At the angle the shot was taken hard to see what's going on. There is a guy sitting on a pickup truck tailgate watching him blast the wall. The section of wall being worked on is grey. The rest of the wall is rust.
