Concrete Patio

Thu May 27, 2010

Whenever I read a book in my field, the first thing I ask myself is if the author happened to demolish a concrete patio (and sidewalk) with a ten-pound sledgehammer during its composition.

The answer is usually no.

I’ve made a number of enemies in the inanimate object kingdom over the years, but rebar now rules over them all.

This captures stage two of the enterprise, the shoveling of particulate concrete matter into a wheelbarrow, then to be wheeled precariously a hundred yards to a dumpster and re-shoveled.
