getting a late start today

Currently raining.  1/2″  last night shouldn’t pose a problem for the berm we built yesterday but it would be nice to have the ground dry out a little bit for walking around.  Scattered  lightning around us now too that has to move off before we go out. The forecast says all of this should be gone in a couple of hours and we can look forward to nice steamy afternoon of excavating.   Will cleared a large area for us yesterday–hate to see all of his work wasted.  Dave
