Destruction Update

I have no idea what they're trying to do to the former/future Recovery Cafe at 2nd & Bell. I stopped by last week and asked one of the orange vests on the job whether they were going to bring down the whole building and start over. He said yes. So why all the care? Bring in the dynamite and start blasting already!

I took these pictures last week, but it looks more or less the same. By the way, it's really hard to take pictures of the place due to all the trees and trucks and such, so this pair of pics doesn't portray the scope of the action very well. But it does show some rubble. That's enough to make everybody cheer, isn't it? Observe:

There! On the roof! It's a mini metal monster! Run! OK, so they're taking down the building, yet it's strong enough to support a small metal monster. What gives? Like I said, dynamite is the answer.

This is a larger metal monster working in the back. And there, ladies and gentlemen, is your rubble. (Hold for applause) I'll go down and take some more photos, but they probably won't be any better than these. It's a remarkably unphotogenic worksite.
