Keeping things high and dry




“To be a surrealist means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been.” — Rene Magritte

                        Finally lowering the boom.

Last Saturday’s weekend challenge on Susan and my alternate site, Weekly Prompts, was SURFACE.

On the SURFACE of things it appeared to many of the residents of this residential site that the contractor had totally forgotten about this “man up” piece of construction equipment. It had been abandoned in an empty parking stall for nearly three weeks.

The machinery was left there the night before a winter blizzard dumped a considerable amount of snow in the area. The platform itself was high and dry and the controls for the machine were also out of reach.

On this day, three weeks later, one of the work crew finally lowered the boom and drove the machine to the site where it was needed. 

Sometimes contractors do things that not only defy logic but the law as well. 

But that’s another story for another time.

All was well and the snow was finally removed from the parking space. 


Weekend Challenge ‘Surface’


    • Good point. In this case it was any port in a storm. The construction site he was working on was five miles away. Could turn the things into a ride of some sort like in amusement parks. 🙂
