Bridge elevation

During my ride today I was going around the Renton airport and I usually cross a bridge that spans the Cedar River. But today, it was standing on hydraulic stilts to allow the flood waters to flow under it.

Then I rode around the airport to the other side of the airport park and looked at the bridge crossing where the Cedar River empties into Lake Washington. I was watching the flood water flow under the bridge when I happened to look down and saw a crane standing beside me.

I took the pictures, retraced my steps up the hill and the crane did not move.

I'm always delighted when I see something extraordinary on an ordinary ride.

California weather

What crazy weather we are having. Here is a picture of a farm in the central valley of California. This area of California may see snow once in 50 to 75 years.

You are looking at a vineyard. We hope the grape harvest will be ok.
