A Man Within A Hole

(Far Above: Jacob stands in the hole. Directly Above: The permanent hole-filling-object awaits its burial.)

Work has steadily continued on the farm throughout this mild winter. The most recent development (or underdevelopment!) has been the addition (or subtraction!) of a hole. Luke gladly dug the hole with the John Deere backhoe. Unlike Mike Mulligan's steam shovel, the hole was dug without the equipment remaining in the hole. Eventually the hole will be filled with a tank. The tank will be filled with propane. The propane will fuel the farmhouse generator and will eventually warm a pool when the farmhouse pool is installed.
