Yes, a nice yellow digger, and a whole bunch of men in our yard.
Just happened to be looking outside when this nice worker stopped to say hello to Kaylee. You know someone is nice when they stop to pet the little dog at the worksite!
For the past nine years we've heated with propane gas...from a tank that gets filled by a truck. There are no gas lines to our house so when we built our house we opted for a tank to be put in the ground to provide us with heat.
The company that has filled our tank has become increasingly difficult (and expensive) to work with over the years. Some people are in the midst of lawsuits with them over their work ethic and business practices.
So today was tank removal, and tank installation day!
I'm so bummed I missed the moment when they lifted this big bad boy out of the ground and placed it out front!
From faraway, you see just how big that thing is in between the house and the woodpile!
I came back from a walk in the evening to find Dave down there in the hole! I'm pretty sure that's where Caleb and Tyler would've been if they were here...about nine years ago! :)
The nice man with the digger stayed through this evening and put all that dirt back, with the new tank settled into its spot underneath.
It's a bit of a mess (and I know whose paws will be dirty for quite a while before the grass grows back!). But at least it was done in a day.
