At least they are only ripping up the front half of my yard. The back yard is untouched.

Aaaaah, the side yard dont look like they left in to poor a shape. Rake out the rock and scatter some good straw down. Let'* hope they level the front out well. Just think, soon you can sit in front of your garage in your boxers with the door up, and watch them go around and around. Where abouts in the roundabout are you going to be. It'* hard to picture it in front of your house. May be, it'* a prime location for a Gas Mart down the road $$$$$

If you look at the picture with the back hoe, there'* a tree with no leaves on it. That'* about where it'* going. The road where that orange box is, I guess that will be closed to cross traffic. I'm lucking out and will be the only hose in this row that wont be able to see the round about.

See John, I told you there was a backhoe in my yard.

And a fine backhoe that is. LOL If they develop more around there, you could sell your land by the sq. foot

Nothing worse than working hard on your place only to have someone come along and ef it all up. You should build a viewing stand on your property over looking the round about, and sit up there in the evenings with numbered signs and rate stupidity!

Ahhhhh, now I know where the Almighty Danthurs resides. I've been past there a ton of times.
I'm with Purple. Think back to the Movie "European Vacation"...and see how many newbies get stuck in the inside lane, white-knuckled and scared shatless. Rubbing is Racing, but not so good in the Roundabout....
