You would think the soil you're digging from the hole would be soupy mud that would be soaking wet, but it doesn't seem like its really that unusually wet.

Ironically the job I'm on now (not the one above), cuts through an old property that had a pool, which was back filled with topsoil.

Thats pretty sweet. Any of you guys ever walked across a peat bog? Its just like that, you can literally launch someone in the air if you jump next to them. Its a weird experience walking on it.
