Wow! After all the rain, Labor Day Weekend, and 2 weeks of visiting family and friends, the trucks and heavy equipment have jumped all over the terrain.

Let's just focus on the upper lot - it's like Spaceship Dirt just landed. Trucks arriving every 6-8 minutes, moving over 100 cubic yards of soil each day, will do that when you're not watching.

Looking towards my building from the NW corner of the lower lot reveals the big change in the grade. Looking north across the upper lot from Broad you can only see the upper edge of what is now a split level surface. From the NE corner of the lot you can see both levels.

Much of the western slope of the upper lot is still covered with huge plastic sheets to prevent erosion. Looking east reveals the height, and looking south shows the angle of the grade, as does the view to the north from the SW corner of the lot at Broad and Elliott.

Look back at July 16th to see the difference.
