I don’t know if you noticed from pictures this summer, but Joseph’s driveway was badly cracked. It needed to be torn out and replaced. So, while we were on our trip, he hired someone to break up the concrete and haul it off.
Joseph’s first house project upon returning from our trip was to prepare the driveway for the concrete and then have it poured. Today dawned overcast and chilly–the day for Pour #1.
A little after ten, the concrete truck pulled up to J’s house. The Geiger driver said he had been a driver for a pour at our house several years ago. Those pours bring back memories! True to tradition, we gave him a plate of chocolate chip cookies, and he was delighted!
Although the temperature indicated the lower 40’s, the breeze made it feel like the lower 30’s (at least to the one holding the camera). Brrr! However, the guys worked hard, so they warmed up quickly. They each had a job to do andÂ efficientlyÂ did it.Â Tomorrow, the other half of the driveway will be poured.
Our hearts go out to those who are experiencing Hurricane Sandy. We are praying for those affected and will continue to do so. Please join us in praying!
Now for pictures from this morning.
“Prepare thy work without,
and make it fit for thyself in the field;
and afterwards build thine house.”
