Curbing Enthusiasm

Yesterday morning was gray and dreary. As we turned the corner 
near work, I saw these men working at the intersection,
installing the forms for new concrete curbing.
I liked their bright, safety green shirts, worn over their
gray sweatshirts and blue denim pants,
the real "stonewashed" jeans.

Overnight rains soaked their work area, meaning no work 
was done Tuesday, but the forms await their cement, lashed, I'm sure, 
with a healthy dose of components to keep the poured
cement from freezing.

In situ poured kerbs? Is that an American thing, Speedway. It seems very odd to me, but then I'm from a very odd little island.
