He found an unpleasant surprise in the concrete... chain link fence was used as a poor man's rebar 

But the job is done! A few hiccups: The guys overloaded the trailer, causing it to get 2 flat tires. We also discovered that part of the driveway had concrete 2' deep, so we just jackhammered off the top and covered the rest with dirt. All-in-all we loaded and dropped off 13 tons of concrete over the course of 2 weeks. The remaining rubble I gave away for free on Craigslist and I gave the metal shed to a neighbor. Exhausting job.

Slytherin' along

A neighbor in Broadmoor posted this photo to the Nextdoor app (kinda like Facebook, but for neighborhoods)

I couldn't resist making a meme out of it:

and yes, that's a live snake. From the looks of it, either a ball python or a rat snake.

And what could make a photo of a giant snake slithering along a wrought-iron fence in the neighborhood even more glorious? {or terrifying} that a kid snapped the photo on his walk home from school.
