Spent the day cleaning and clearing mud, debris, and materials from Mr. Moto’s home. It was hard work and extremely hot inside the waterproof gear we had to wear. The soil we bagged from the silt and sludge was toxic. It’s full of oil, sewage, chemicals, decay, and things that smelled awful. First all the debris had to be carried away. Then underneath anywhere from 4 to 6 inches of mud had to be shoveled into sandbags and carried to the roadside. The team worked nonstop and were amazing. I’ll post more details later. Too tired to write anymore. Below is just and example of one small section. There were lots more here on site.
I think I’m going to sleep well tonight.
