It ended not with a bang or a whimper, but with a flush..
That's a picture of the digger filling in our "Street Hole." You can see the pile of dirt from our "Lawn Hole," which has been filled in, but the dirt has yet to settle. We'll probably have some nice shots of the front yard mud zone this spring.
But we have function, so we're celebrating every flush, every shower, ever load of laundry. It's nice to have normality back. As for appreciating the things we have now that we have it back... nah. Taking infrastructure for granted is fine.
