I made a trip to the site to watch the excavator break ground. This was April 28. The site was staked and ready to go. Here is the site on the eve of ground breaking.
Doh! A blizzard.
Here is the site the next day.
Spring in the Rockies is a loose concept. We ended up with a one-week weather delay.
Here it is May 3 and we did finally break ground today. I can see the site from the ski area’s webcam and could watch the backhoe from my desk. It’s the green blob on this still image.
OK, we’re now finally underway.
