Unwelcome Guests

Not exactly who I would invite for cocktails.
Yes they have shovels.
Yes they dug.
They dug the corner right where you see them standing (by the way just how many City 'officials' does it take to dig a hole?)
Then they dug along the parkway too.
They brought heavy equipment and excavated
Then we heard a jack hammer (not a pretty sound)
My dh has labored on restoring our lawn to a lush green landscape and now this.

Oh, in case you're wondering why?
They said there was a short in the electrical that runs underground
by OUR house only (sigh)
