  1. Hi Mark,
    I like this story in pictures. Words are hardly needed as the photos tell the story vividly. I’m not sure if you can go back and correct four errors, but I’ll mention them in case they are correctable:
    “Town crew pumping with Larry Hennessey” should be Frank Hennessey.
    “Larry on basement steps” should add Larry Want, so people know his full name.
    “Adding soil west side” should be south side.
    Final photo of Repairs Begins section should be turned 90 degrees to right (walls have pink insulation in them)
    Again, thanks for a good summary despite these picky problems. It seems so long ago now!
