Various images

Some of these images are from WADOT. The slide is recent, as of today and yesterday. The bank stablization is from October. We have some very active weather lately, getting over 13 inches of rain with snow levels at 10,000ft (wind too but that doesn't affect flooding). It's going to be quite nasty tonight and tomorrow too. Lots of flooding.

...and a few more with end result of bank stabilization. The other pics are just random things.

Cat looks a little worn, I guess even it needs a vacation in the Bahamas!

The Pacific Northwest and the lower West Coast corner of B.C. is seeing lots of rain. Anything is better than rotten snow.

Excellent pictures. What's the idea behind having the logs sticking out of the bank with I beam between, do they get cut shorter?

The logs will catch debris floating down and prevent future debris jams, as well as habitat for the "F" words.

Those Hitachi's look damn nice together.

Grademan,

Yup I know United has at least 200's for rent. I believe the one with the breaker is a 200.

I think it's an odd way to prevent debris jams in the river but I think Bobcat Ron is right. I was thinking it was just more support for the bank to prevent serious erosion. The Hitachis do look great together.

Gravelrat, I'd take SNOW any day over rain.

Tigerotor, the sauk river bank stabilization is in Darrington which is 40 minutes north of seattle and 30 miutes east of I5. So it's quite a ways out there. The slide pics are from SR 11 which goes between two counties about 60 minutes north of Seattle. It's a very, very nice drive. I used to live in the southern county the SR starts in and I loved just driving up and down it on good summer days and in the snow!


This pic shows a fossil impression that is found in the rocks from SR 11. It fell down during the slide. I thought it was kinda cool. A lot of fossils are found in the rock on this state route.

(not my hand btw)
