If great responsibility comes with great power, what are you supposed to do with a great sense of humor?

Because I Can Can Can

Last week I blogged a little about my professional life. This week, I'd like to share some pictures and words about the new I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, MN. I was able to visit the construction site while in the Cities for a class, and I followed on the Saturday morning sidewalk tour. I have Carl Something (not his real last name) from New York to thank for the shutterbuggery.


Also, if you're bored, the Minneapolis Star Tribune has a really awesome webcam. It's not "live", but it is real-time, so you can update it every few seconds and watch the little worker bees change position. For your own health and safety, don't call them "little worker bees" to their face. You can find the cam here: http://www.startribune.com/local/18346174.html?location_refer=Special%20Projects

Hey all, since I can't seem to organize the comic book related blog entries I've got floating in my head, I thought I'd give you a brief glimpse into what I do, which is bridge engineering. In my last job, I was kind of specialized in design for 4 years, then construction inspection for 3. In my new job, I've done everything but forensic engineering (think: why did that bridge fall down?), and I enjoy all of it. Yesterday, I got to get up at 3am to inspect a deck pour.

The bridge is about 130' long and 60' wide, including a 14' wide pedestrian walkway. Here are some pics.
