Preseason Day Thirteen
Early morning in the compound. Tools are lined up which can mean only one thing -- tool draft will be happening any day now. This is the process by which the grid supervisors divvy up the tools. First task? To make sure we have enough tools for each grid. Second? To make sure some of the tools are in tip top shape (yes, every grid gets a clunker or two).
Another staff member arrives tomorrow and then one more again on Wednesday. The work load is increasing and so is the heat, sure signs the dig season is right around the corner.
