It's a good story, which is why I made it into a Vision and Verb post for today: Seeing is Believing!
Those weed-control tarps saved someone's
ass day, trust me.
Ironically, of all those hundreds of images I had processed and collaged over 9 months last year, the only ones I didn't get to were these from early December that somehow got lost in the holiday hubbub. Until I found out how important they were for Hoomer!
Pay attention to those worteldoek (weed-control tarps) above. They were CLEARLY laid down on the ground, side by side, before all the dirt was piled on top. Those images are proof that Hoomer did it! However, when the environmental agency got his bill, they said he'd have to prove it...by digging through the dirt to show them. But I'm spoiling my story....
Hoomer told me they dumped 4234 cubic meters of dirt to shore up the ground.
It's below sea level, collecting water that messed up the sewage and drainage systems,
which is why the apartments had to be torn down in the first place.
4234 m³ at 16 m³/truckload = 265 truckloads of dirt. WOWSER.
Many times they came and unloaded just under our balcony.
Lucky me, right?
See the tarps? YUP. He did it.
