Sinkhole day 2

Well the garden is more trashed than I imagined it would be... :( They said where they were going with the drilling machine but they ended up taking out(squashing) the whole back row of black eyed susans.

Rob was home and he took out most of what I wanted saved. Wish they told me about those black eyed susans

and the front.
Day 1 before drilling
Day 2 after drilling. I think it looks a bit worse. but then so does every other crack that was there and there are lots more new ones.
I think its kind of neat how they went thru the cement and pulled out a solid piece of the cement

Day 3 starts pouring cement into those drilling points lets see what happens in the way of damage from that....

Its sinkhole week.

It really has been a long depressing year for me. I haven't really posted because I have nothing to post about. I stopped doing embroidery, started working, raised a puppy on my own.

And now... Its well over a year and a half that I filed a claim with the insurance company for a sinkhole under the house. Tell tale signs were cracking straight thru the bricks of the house, garage floor cracking and getting wider... Pictures from a year and a half ago are on my flickr, maybe later I will post some here for comparison. This is what todays are like. Just a couple from each side of the house and in the garage. First is my little garden. Lets see what they can do to mess this up. I was warned that all plantings may have to come out.

This first one starts above the hose reel and goes down to the ground.
Under the man cave window
This was one of the first of the bigger cracks on the garage side of the house.
Inside the garage.
here you can see it goes to the ceiling
Bedroom window. The sewing cave window is worse but that pic is on another camera.
Outside the sewing cave.

There are so many more cracks. From 2 days ago really too many to show. The work started yesterday and there is much more cracking and my little garden is trashed. Today the drilling is finished and in a couple days they start pouring cement under the house.
