A Robot Dinosaur Ate My House

We waited on PG&E in September. Then October began with two weeks of WEATHER. We had to wait until it dried up to begin demolition.

Of course, the perfect window opened up after we booked a weekend away in Phoenix. We arrived back in Mountain View on Monday morning around 10:30am. By then, most of the house had already gone.

We stood and watched as the frontloader took great big bites of the house...

Chewed it...

...and spit it into the awaiting truck. It took something like 4 or 5 loads to get everything. And then the lot was empty.

Gregory was fascinated and I think a bit overwhelmed. I asked him what he thought and he said, "I don't like a robot dinosaur eating my house!"
