That's been the song on supervisor Scott Alligood's mind, at least.
But Mother Nature hasn't been listening.
She's had other plans for Alligood and his construction crew working in Aiken.
"It slowed the site work down tremendously. Normally, on a job like this, we would already have the asphalt binder down."
Binder is the part of the parking lot you see, but Alligood says you can't lay it down if the ground is wet. Otherwise cracks or potholes could form.
But a break in the clouds means there's hope for their deadline.
"We can't get a lot done today, we're using today to dry things out and we still have some muddy spots that we're working this afternoon," Alligood said, "We're trying to prep some areas so we can pour some concrete tomorrow."
Prep for concrete and lights.
Electrician Mike Hague said, "We cannot get our pipe tied together from pole to pole to make the lights come on because we have to dig trenches. With all this rain, it's making nothing but mud."
