You don’t really expect much from the weather up here in the November Pacific Northwest, but boy, it’s been brutal. We’re way past the average rainfall for the month and we’ll probably set a record; enough Wednesday to dump landslides into the reservoirs and now we’re all drinking boiled water. Trees down in the wind, and a four-story steel-frame building under construction. Nobody hurt on that one—it was at night—but you gotta feel sorry for the guys who showed up to work on the site in the morning. I took a picture outside my office.
To make things worse, they’re building new sidewalks on the street where my office is; there’s another bunch of construction workers to feel sorry for. The store downstairs is having a “We have no sidewalk sale”.
Things have to get better.
