Thank you.

I don’t know which hat he was wearing when he was operating the drone. Maybe the video will never see the light of day. A time-lapse camera has been installed and that video will be available after the job completes.

I enjoy being on site with the Stacy & Witbeck team and all of their subcontractors. Everyone has been so kind to me. Observing the work and talking with all the trades has been very interesting.

Beautiful Day To Drop By The Beach And Watsonville

I was surprised to see clear skies yesterday morning instead of the gray and foggy mornings we have been experiencing the last few weeks. I took a few hours off from work and headed down to La Selva Beach and caught the Manitwoc 2250 crawler crane being moved on to its pad.

After taking photographs at La Selva for a future post I headed to Watsonville to see if the F9’s were out and about. When I arrived at Lee Road I could see they were preparing to deliver an empty refrigeration car to Del Mar Foods. A conductor on a temporary work assignment from Chicago aligned the switch so the F9’s could runaround the awaiting refrigeration car on the siding.

Some of you may be wondering where MH 89 has been the last few months. SC&MB received so many complaints about its hideous paint that management decided to scrap it in place.

Just kidding, MH 89 is out of service awaiting repair parts and looks as hideous as ever.

I think I can finally scratch one item off the bucket list.
