Pile pour at SeaTac

As mentioned below. Amazing work - imagine trying to pat your head, rub your belly AND dance a mazurka. And remember, you're doing this work with materials the size of a 4-foot-diameter, 63-foot-long steel pipe pile weighting something like 40,000 pounds.

Construction can be jaw-droppingly impressive at times. Makes up for the nasty little slumdivisions and crappy stop-n-robs I've helped litter the Willamette Valley with over the past 15 years.

Not that I don't love my job!

Back soon with: firefights and a camel...
