    This will slow down the build for sure

    When a man decided to dig a plot in his New Orleans backyard for a swimming pool, he ended up discovering a historic cemetery that dates back to the 1700s.
    Vincent Marcello lives in the historic French Quarter of the city and unearthed 13 caskets while workers dug up his backyard.
    The caskets were said to be stacked one on top of the other underground, at the property that used to be St. Peter Cemetery before it was closed down.

    He must be on pretty high ground for stacked caskets...isn't the water table the reason they have those mosoleum cemeteries?

    Maybe not back in the 1700s...not sure what the elevation of the French Quarter is. Google earth says it's between 0 and 10 feet or so (not including the levee), so I bet those caskets were nice and soggy...
