Yes that's for sure, terrible.....and a lot of concrete yes.
In one pier there is 80,600 cubic yards of concrete. So, I guess it must have been perilous and very difficult to attempt to get the man out of it.
Those guys have my respect. Like the Golden Gate, the men who built these were as tough as the structures themselves. Not to mention fearless.

Just a ponder here -

Imagine 10,000 years in the future when the written history of today has been lost. Archeologists rediscover our civilization and begin to excavate some of our life and lifestyle. What will they find out about us from the clutter we leave behind? Will they think the man encased in the Mac bridge pillar is a king, or a sacrificed slave?

Will that be the 121st century?

Not as bad as the guy buried in the end zone in Pittsburgh?? Rumour has it Jimmy somebody or other but definitely not cricket.

Ok, we are having 59mph winds. Power out for many homes, trees in roads but all campers surviving so far. High profile traffic has been stopped from crossing bridge. Trucks and campers stacking up on empty lots here in town. Wayne has crossed the bridge this morning before the wind got so high but I'm worried he might not make it back across. One look at his Big Head and they may consider him a high profile vehicle. Duck your head down Wayne, Miya misses you!

Chuck has his awning out but tied down, Ed and I retied one end that had broke loose. Updates will follow!

I had to revise my “awning “. Wind tearing grommets. It is awkward, but want to keep things dry tonight on the odd chance of rain. Silicone city Saturday.

Did y'all hear it? That giant "TA DA" when I turned the water back on and the toilet didn’t leak? I had to replace the floor seal and T bolts. Such a fun job. My bathroom was tiny to start, then I added hooks and shelves to store stuff I can’t let Sena have. It's good that I'm not claustrophobic.

When working on something inside, I have to lock Sena outside in her cage or she'll "help" and it takes twice as long. So she sat on the ledge outside the window and slapped it for over an hour.

Tomorrow I get to pull the kitchen sink out so I can get the faucet mounted properly. I wish I hadn’t procrastinated all summer about doing these chores. We need to leave soon and I have a BUNCH yet to do.

Hey Barb, I’m glad you can do all that stuff. I had help yesterday with tarp and platform adjustments and storage rigging. Tom and Janet are now local heroes.

Today I’m just a little less envious of Y'all at the GC. Stay warm, but don’t have too much fun without us. More PoP please!

We drove into Mackinaw City around 4 PM to do some laundry, only to find the place closes at 5. Surprise, surprise. Try it again Saturday, a bit earlier this time, hope it's not too busy...
Saw all the traffic backed up on the Interstate and a bunch of semis and RV's parked all along the nearby streets.
