When I got back at 9:30 they were just digging up the sidewalk. But the job was interrupted by an inspector form the Parks Department.
Anyway, a couple of hours later, I had no water and went downstairs to see what was going on. Ther was no arborist on site but the project did get bigger. Apparently the valve for our building was across the street and busted. Also, the Gas and Electric companies had to join the party so we did not cause a bigger problem. The problem was the fact the the street not had to be closed
Which, I am told, caused traffic to be backed up for over a mile
I was told by my Facebook buddies that live up the street that traffic started moving by 7pm. They knew this because the steady din of horns had stopped.
and when I woke up for my 2 am pee, the water was on again.
But back to that tree. This is the tree the Parks Dept guy was worried about.
I don't actually remember when, but it was probably planted since I lived here.
It is a nice tree and makes my block much better.
It will grow up and become a great tree.
Just like the ones in Prospect Park that I photographed on my run.
