Mr. President, your grass is almost ready! (part 2)

Part 1, which was posted a couple of weeks before the election, may be seen here:

I feel silly to be proud of the job I was a part of, but I feel proud none the less. Overall not many Americans have even seen the Capitol Building, the Mall, or the National Monument, much less been a part of all the work that happens around these landmarks.

It was a cool and drizzly morning in DC.



It was unseasonably warm, but a cold front was pushing through and we had work to do.





The sod had been put down, hiding the thousands of hours of labor that happened underneath it, and it was our task to help it thrive. We were there to run spikes through it to allow air and water to penetrate it.







Mr. President, I hope you approve of the new lawn a million people will stand on while you are sworn in for your second term. I know Iím proud to have been a (very small) part of making it grow strong.
