Around sixty-five million years ago, a meteorite at least six miles in diameter struck the Yucatán Peninsula near the town of Chicxulub. The impact caused a global catastrophe that many scientists have theorized may have been responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs. It resulted in a crater more than 110 miles in diameter.
While not as big as the Chicxulub crater, the hole left by the diggers in our Sadsbury Park lot today certainly has a significant impact on our lives. At last, after waiting well over four months, we have broken ground on our new home. My wife and I are absolutely delighted to see work finally begin.
We expect the digging to be completed tomorrow, with footers going in on Wednesday or Thursday (weather permitting).
This is definitely the most exciting day since we decided to sign the contract that started this process.
