I was sitting at the computer eating a bagel this morning at about 7:30 when the doorbell rang. I answered it, bagel in hand, and it was the contractor that we had hired to replace the driveway. We had known that he was going to start today, but he hadn't mentioned a time, and frankly, I hadn't expected him so early. He said that he was there, ready to start, and asked me if I needed to get my car out of the garage.
So I finished my bagel and went out in my robe and slippers to move the car.
When I left a little later, this is what the driveway looked like.
I talked to Bob around mid-day, and he said that they had hauled off all of the broken concrete. I'm not sure whether they'll pour the new driveway today or not, or what all they have to do to get it ready.
Kinda interesting, and very expensive.
