about a week/two weeks ago (as of 5/11) some workmen started digging some massive holes in a field across from my house that is to become a housing
development in the future.
but first, some background. the feild is situated at the end of a approximately 50 yard long stub road. My house is directly across from the stub
road. About, i dunno, 3 or 4 years ago the land was bought and the field, a fallow farmer's field, was graded somewhat and a mound of dirt at the
end of the stub road was levelled (not really impt). it sat like that for a long time, until almost a year ago i would guess. then, some workmen
started to grade to put dirt roads in. thru the center of the field they made a road. in a kind of low spot in the road near the middle of the field
they piled two mounds of dirt, one on each side of the road. (i ahev some pictures of it in this state if anyone is interested enought i'll upload
them ) there were some other roads bu they are irrelevant. so it stayed like that until about two weeks ago.
thats when i went over there to look around because i heard the machinery going. what i found was the low spot and two piles of dirt had dissapeared
and in their place was a large, low mound of dirt approximatley perindicular to where the road used ot be. in the genral vicinity were several deep,
single-scoop gashes in random places. note: i was not there to use/vandalize/turn on machinery. the next day, i went back and found a huge hole just
in front of the mound of dirt from the day before, only now the mound was higher. this hole was approx. 15 to 20 feet deep, 30 feet long, and 20 feet
wide. i had no accurate way of getting measurments i just guessed. finding this interesting i went back to my house to get my brother and a rope,
one of the sides was slightly slanted, and i thought it would be neat to climb down in there. but i wasn't sure if i could get out. so i got my
brother to potentially hold the rope to help me climb out. (turns out i didn't need it) more pics can go here.
this next paragraph is irrelevant to my point, but it is interesting. we then go the bright idea to climb down a vertical side, like rock climbing.
we didn't have any of the right gear except this rope. so after dinner we went back out there, with my mom and dad insisting to come and see this
hole. i shot some movies with my digital camera but they didn't come out right (too dark) and i really don't want to upload them over 56k. anyway,
we were successful and it was fun. after seeing it my mom speculated that it might be a swimming pool, but no hard evidence.
so maybe two days later i go back out and now the hole is nearly 60 feet long! at this point i have no idea of what it could be and i was tempted to
go out there one day while they were working and ask them but i never did. so, two/three days after that i go out there again and THE ENTIRE THING IS
FILLED UP so that it is only about half its original depth. WTF?!? but wait, there's more. over the next 2 days they fill it in completely without
obviously touching the giant dirt pile next to it with a grader. the, about two days ago, they dig another hole about the same depth but shorter and
a little thinner very close to the original! and then today i noticed it too was filled in!
does anybody have any ideas as to what they are doing? anyone in the construction business? i think they might be burying radioactive/toxic wastes
but that's just a guess (SARCASM) the machinery they have been using consists of 1 digger? don't knwo technical name, it has a scoop in the
front, sits on treads, two volvo dump trucks, a grader, and three bulldozers, 2 of them caterpillars and the other i think a volvo.
