Muddy Boots

In retrospect, it would certainly behoove a contractor to pay close attention to the weather forecast when contemplating bringing in a Bobcat to grade a building site. Otherwise you're talking about an unholy amount of slick wet slippery mud.

The crew from Pugliese Painting arrived on time, bright and early, and did a great job cleaning the house before applying the prep coat to the walls and ceiling upstairs, and priming the entire basement, all in the time it takes to say 'boy, that was fast.' They'll be back in the morning to prime the main floor, and will no doubt finish before I've had my first cup of tea of the day.

Kenny the Excavator demonstrated his considerable Bobcat skills in difficult conditions as the rain came down while grading the driveway, and by lunchtime the decision was made to cut a messy day short and come back for seconds tomorrow, when the weather should be much more amenable to the moving around of a multitude of mud.
