Footings, yessssss

We were surprised on Saturday to find that they we going to pour concrete.  I was hoping that we would, because it would give the weekend to cure and block laying could begin on Monday.

I thought the cool thing they used was the outside form.  It's a plastic form that you leave in place and its secondary use is out drain tile.

Well, it's not that I haven't been keeping this up to date, but rather we had a case of the blues, droplet size blues in the form of rain. The lifters were done on the 17th of June, and it managed to rain Friday morning, Sunday night, Monday morning, Tuesday morning, Tuesday night, Wednesday morning.  Pretty depressing to say the least. History won't record this, but it will remember this as the year that the Elkhorn river flooded half of Norfolk and the surrounding communities. But, the rains stopped, at least long enough to get some footings formed.
