Soil Sampler

Bright spraypaint appeared in the front yard yesterday marking underground water and power lines. This morning: BANG, BANG, BANG interrupted my morning snooze. Neighbors on either side had soil samples bored out with this contraption to pound the soil collection pipes down more than 20 feet.
There are underground rivers in this area. Whenever anyone wants to build a basement they must first find out if they are on one of those rivers. If so, they must build a battleship underground to keep out the water. Very expensive. Very noisy and long construction projects.
Oh well. We shall see. It's really just a very small problem. Snooze on. I shall meditate wishing safety and peace to the hundreds of Burmese monks who were woken up last night by soldiers and hauled away to who knows where.
