Proud Mary Keep On Flushin'

Enter Phase 2: Project Runs-way: The folks in plaid shirts and hard hats started across the street and now must come over, under, or through our road in order to get to the other side. I suppose the good news is they don’t have to rip up the road to lay the sewer pipes. I may have been a bit disgruntled had I been forced to take a 15 mile detour to drive 200 feet.

Oh no. The good news is that they are able to work 24 hours a day to drill underground. Day and night. Night and day. Their bright lights shine like a beacon from the mother ship. They shoveled and shoved and shoved and shoveled their way under the road until they could put those enormous pipes in the ground. Then they gave ‘em a big shove, just like a giant enema. Yep. An enema for mother earth. They shoved those giant sewer pipes right underneath the road, straight to the other side. Neato.
