Anyway- at 8:45AM we hear all this rumbling outside and realize the city is oiling and chipping all the side streets and they are on CHARTER street! We spent the next half hour on the front steps observing, discussing, and waving to the city workers keeping our street nice.
Here is a dump truck putting gravel into the gravel distribution machine while it moves down the street.
Alaric and Amara watch in silence...well- not Alaric- he never stopped talking about the trucks.
Here is the oil machine- it drops the hot tar on the ground and makes big hot sizzling clouds as it does it.
