There is a state specification for it. MDOT and the counties buy the stuff for road projects in the fall. Not sure though whether it isn't too late for a cover crop in January. Don't think we would have the soil temp for it to germinate. The contractor should put down these straw mats to control erosion until the spring. Either way, the yard is going to be a mud-bog until June.

At times, I can put together enough lucidity to see that the light at the end of the tunnel is not a train.

But sometimes I get it wrong.

I agree; mud bog until the April showers bring the May flowers. My kids already have muck boots. They're prepared.

Final paperwork has been produced by the sellers and the contractor. I wired my cash to close to title today. I'm signing for me, and also signing everything as POA for my wife, this Friday morning. I will have a sore right hand by Friday afternoon.

We've closed and moved in. I've put a turd into my brand new sewage system. It's officially mine now.

The hassle of moving is just about done! The hassle of UNPACKING is due to begin this week and next. Comcast needs to come out and trench in a new cable line from the green box; the existing had a ridiculous signal loss so the Comcast man ran a surface temporary cable for now and this internet is FAST.

Congrats ! (I think)

Does the controller that comes with your new high-tech turd dissolution machine show you to entire trip of the turd through the system ? At that price, it should...

I am currently in the process of unpacking the last boxes from a move 10 years ago Unfortunately, I know there are some documents somewhere in those boxes, so I can't just toss them unopened.

As you'll have to restore most of your backyard grass anyway, just tell the comcast guy not to put down his weed-mix after he plows the new coax (they don't trench, just a little plow on some kind of powered wheelbarrow). Just make it part of your overall spring restoration project.
