Peace and quiet are back, for now.
After a day and a half of intense activity, peace is temporarily back on the now empty lot. It is Friday afternoon, and everybody knows nobody in the residential construction business works at a customer's on a Friday afternoon if one can help it.
Where a two story empty home surrounded by tall soft cedars stood now only a dip in the land is left. From the street, one can see now that there are two not so wide lots, but deep enough to know a pair of homes can be built there. Snugly, but it would fit. Four great Silver Maples all in a row in the middle could be a problem for the builders, but for now, they stand guard over freshly overturned earth, splitting the property almost right in the center.
Only a few hours after the digger left, the grackles, robins, cardinals and mourning doves have already taken over, looking for food, I would guess.
