There are now a couple mud puddles.
Most of the ground, while still damp, was quite solid. It looked like the water drained down through it without a problem. There were a couple puddles though, where the soil was a dramatically different color. As I walked near the puddles, I thought it was going to suck my boots off my feet! Very sticky wet clay. On the one hand, I am interested in how it would have behaved if we had a large amount of rain. On the other hand, I want the build to progress, so I don't really want to see a deluge just to satisfy my curiosity.
I talked to Newt. He was picking up the first Nudura forms and rebar. He is planning to have gravel show up tomorrow, and it sounds like by later on Wednesday I may have a drainage layer in my footers and the first of the forms installed.
Now I am off to continue reading my book on hydronic heating.
