I have to admit, when I found the FIRST piece of rebar driven into the ground like freakin' Excalibur, I growled imprecations at the previous tenants.
Last night when I found the second, I whimpered.
is no doubt in my mind that each of these is at least 6 feet long and
was meticulously and maliciously painstakingly hammered into the ground
just to screw over the future homeowner. They aren't in line with the
sprinklers so I doubt they are marking out anything to do with them. I
also fully expect to find more of the things.
Nearby these two
chunks of ankle-breakers are the two wads-of-concrete-with-rotted-wood
posts postholes I uncovered. None of them line up so it's pretty clear
they are unrelated. Now I have to figure out WHY they hammered rebar
into the ground with such malevolent enthusiasim.
Whatever the answer is, lord it can't be good.
