Year 2, Day 231: 17 June 2014

Today's substation activity deserves its own theme song.
The whole building was shaking this morning when the steamroller got underway, crushing the gravel along the roadway. By day's end, Glenwood Avenue was covered in macadam and -- for the first time in a year and a half -- was looking like a real street again. It won't be long now, folks! 

PS. I had a funny encounter last weekend. As i was walking past the substation two men were standing looking at it and asked me if i knew "what that building is." I laughed and said, "You really asked the right person!" and went on to explain what it was and what purpose it would serve when completed. They were surprised that such a beautiful building had such a practical purpose. So clearly i'm not the only one who appreciates the beauty of this building.
