    Good news: trailers are going in on 8/8 Bad news: they’re hoisting them in by crane in the middle of the night and have requested access to my property to position the crane, which might result in some “damage” to my sidewalk, according to the Project Support Manager. She was quick to point out that any and all damage would be repaired free of charge, but I’m left with a “hhhhhmmmmm, let me think” feeling. On the one hand, free (and overdue) repair of my sidewalk. On the other, a protracted battle trying to get them to live up to their word in a timely fashion. What d’yall think?

    Good idea. I’ll have them etch it in cement.
