SkyWatch Friday - Happy Earth Day!

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 22 April 2010

The skies have been gorgeous here lately. Sunny, mild weather is heralding in spring! You can see on the trees in the pics below that the leaves are well on their way.
For SkyWatch Friday I thought I would revisit an old site and show the progress of the work being done on the 108 year old train bridge. They are in the process of reinforcing the original stone pillars so they can add a new  rail line.

 I zoomed in on a group of workers on the bridge looking down at the work and couldn't resist showing this one! It really made me laugh. Please note these are all "white hats", typically worn by Supervisors.

  The world has so many great skies to see! Go to SkyWatch Friday to enjoy them all!

  2. That looks like normal supervision. In fairness, though, I have known the rank and file to yell at supervisors who dared to pick up a shovel.

  4. Martha having been in both positions I know that to be true!

    Thanks fredamans!

  6. Hi Lorac,
    The weather here in England, yes England, has been sunny and warm, lately. Nice to note the buds on the trees in your photos. Hope your Earth Day was a peaceful and positive time.
    With respect, Gary

  29. Thank you for sharing your world on Skywatch. I see a lot of supervising going on here in New Mexico, too. I always assume they freeze in place when I'm watching, then hustle back to work when I turn away. They must, mustn't they?

  30. Looks like too many supervisors to get anything done. What one says, the other will say the opposite. That's a beautiful bridge. I don't see how they can keep it looking the same and add a second track. - Margy

  32. some jobs take a lot of supervisors :-}

  33. Animor Says:
  34. A gorgeous sky, the bridge is great too. Thanks for visiting me.

  35. Lorac: What a neat shot of the bridge, I also like all your bosses in a line.

  36. Jenn Jilks Says:
