We poured the slab today, on a cool Louisiana day with a high overcast. It was sunny, but we were not getting the full benefit of the warming rays.
There are days when concrete just does not want to set. The trucks arrived at 9:00 a.m. this morning and at 8:00 p.m., they were still working the slab, under lights.
They left at 8:40 p,m. The slab looks to be as smooth as a baby's butt. The beauty of working a salb with cross-light, like the headlights of a truck, is that every little wrinkle casts a shadow three tiems as big as the problem.
I talked to the builder late this afternoon. He'll let the slab cure for two weeks then start up with the building. The best part about this project is that everything that comes across the culvert is already paid for. No loan officers involved.
