The next morning commenced a relentless day of digging with the addition of a mini backhoe, a jackhammer, and even more guys from Debbie's team. Above, the holes created with the auger were generally too shallow due to the obstructions.
We couldn't have done this part without the mini back hoe, but it was a bit like using a sledgehammer to crack a peanut.
In the right hands the jack hammer can get through anything, but it is sloooow going and back-breaking work. Everyone on site got a thorough workout that day.
Special thanks to Eric Peterson, Debbie Unger, and all the grounds crew!! What was meant to be a simple operation ballooned into a huge undertaking, but Debbie and her crew didn't stop until the job was done.
