WOW!  Eleven!

We saw Mike at lunch today and he said he had four blocks set, doubling the number of two that had been set prior to the weekend.  I thought that was tremendous progress after seeing the equipment issues and roadway conditions he faced Saturday.  I know he was frustrated with Saturday's situation, all out of his immediate control, given the schedule to have the right-of-way ready for fall work weekend track construction.

And he found the boom truck had a flat tire Sunday morning.  Plus time spent to fix Casey today.

So to have eleven blocks set is a tremendous achievement!  Kudos to Mike and Start for making that happen.

Reading of wall progress reminds me of WWII reports of how Seabees built landing strips on wartime Pacific islands facing incredible obstacles, so our air forces could advance.

Outstanding work on both accounts.

And I see a dirty yellow square behind a tree trunk, mid-picture. Clancy?
