Rain on the way
LA in it's semi-desert environment is thirsty for rain- and every drop from the sky is greatly appreciated- unless, of course, you are in the middle of construction, or -even worse- have your footings dug out and are getting ready for rebar and concrete. And that's where we are right now. We had two days of rain so far- and Abe, our contractor, had transformed the site into a Cristo monument by wrapping all exposed dirt in plastic sheeting and lining the perimeter with sandbags. But construction had to stop for a few days. Now, he's begun tying the cages for the caissons and the footings are expected to be poured some time during the second half of next week.
