Yesterday I went for a short walk in the neighborhood to buy vegetables. I was moving at a glacial pace, trying hard to keep making progress without actually breaking a sweat — a very tricky balance in this heat. But when I turned into a lane to take a shortcut, I found the Expo Beautification Sewer Replacement Project underway in this neighborhood.
Phew! You can’t imagine a bigger stink than this open sewer in 100F (40-ish C) heat. Apparently we were lucky that they did our lane’s sewers back in the winter!
