Gotta Laugh at Boulder County

The Twin Lakes open space project is in full swing; paths and bridges are being built, and a wooden fence is being put up in certain areas.

One morning I saw the open space workers drilling holes with a powered auger. That evening when I was walking the dogs again, I noticed a couple utility company trucks in that spot working past the normal hours.

The next day, red flagging and markings appeared, on top of the area where the fencing was being put. It's pretty clear what happend here.

You would think of all people and organizations, the county would be the first to "call before you dig." It was a promotion a few years ago paid for by the county. Go figure.
