Stones, stones, stones

Expat sent me this photo and story about this massive pile of rocks. Mercy Hospital is digging out a new underground parking garage, on the North side between 4th and 5th avenues. This picture shows the problem excavators have to contend with any time they dig in the Hillcrest/Mission Hills area. SDDP has featured these glacial boulders before -- in their useful role as building material.

These stones are also a major factor in the question, why don't our homes have basements ? It can be done, but you really have to want to dig through the layers of adobe [or caliche] rubble stone, gravel, sand; then again, clay, rubbles. sand n gravel; then again...etcetera.
