Drilling has begun!

Well folks, we may be U/C as of this morning. The big rig is spinning and twirling and a large top is in the ground. Victor will be down there to confirm later today as to whether this is indeed a caisson and not another access shaft for the frieght tunnels

UPDATE...

Alright folks, as of 10:38 am this morining the rig has been drilling in a different location farther east, closer to LSD. The rig is using 12 foot diameter drill bit. I don't want to jump the gun, but this looks official.

Do you expect the mods to not go to work and just sit here on the forums all day waiting so they can change this to U/C the second it actually happens? My god have some patience.
