    60 here and showers, thunder and lightning yesterday but rain was down the road not right here.

    This spring has not been good for scooter riding, at least for us fair weather folks.

    Just checked camera.

    Pouring last east guard rail right now it looks like. Going to be tight.

    I was able to bicycle ride the last 2 days. Sounds 1.9" of rain tonight and tomorrow then the next 6 days will be on and off rain.

    Looks like they still have a few minor items but appears they are ready for traffic tomorrow.

    Supposed to "shower" here tonight. To the folks down here that means six to eight drops.

    Yea, six hours tomorrow morning but setting up for the suits will cut in to their man power, cannot tell if they stripped forms this afternoon, if they did it was hot concrete poured today.

    Electricians still have not closed up boxes on poles but wire is pulled. (Could still heat it up for tonight, they work late it appears) It is always on the electricians, they are last out normally.

    Bet the contractor is at "punch list" items for a couple weeks yet.

    My monitor is not clear enough to see. At the far end near where the scaffolding is still in place, is that a big pile of scrape lumber on the river bank?

    It is dirt, maybe with erosion control of some sort over it, from what it looks like on my high res 24" monitor but the camera is the limitation.

    Still planning on heading that way soon and hopefully a few passes on new bridge after the hoopla.

    For funsies, will approach from south side first before winding my way back to north side for the speeches and official opening.

    Have had the fun of helping the street light guys meet tight deadlines before and getting out of the way just in time.
