Due to my current case of brain numbness, I'm not making fun of this project any more. This is just a faithful narrative of an interesting project. Everybody is just doing the best they can.
Today they are starting to install their huge cache of silt barriers. These look wonderful on a project, and are very pretty. They make people feel good, like binging on organic ethanol mixed with organic fructose. There will soon be a big pile of these gravel silt filters.
ps. Today all the underwater silt bags are gone, and they are back to rearranging piles. I'm glad they are so happy.
