The Minnesota river is coming dang close to swallowing hwy 101 again this spring. This is nothing new. It's happened many times for decades. I crossed it yesterday to see how high the water is getting. Sure enough, a little more and hwy 169 will be the new river crossing for a time for many.

For historical reference: (For history buffs like me)

Hwy 101 during the flood of 1993. Hwy 101 during the flood of 2001

It would also seem that the Holmes street bridge in town is being taken down. It's been there for somewhere around 60+ years. scolio_hates_lj, yarrick & myself took pictures there a couple years ago. I think buran even joined us in doing so while she visited at that time. Save those pictures, folks. It looks like soon they'll be keepsakes of some local history.

Historical reference:
The bridge was built in 1928

The bridge used to be the main west side entrance into Shakopee. Kinda sad to see it go if they really are taking it down. These days it's a pedestrian bridge. But I'm sure by now it's time to bring it down.

In other news, it sounds like we may not be too far from the personal cloaking device. I disappear!

Speaking of disappearing...
Is it 6:30 yet? I need a beer and to go home and relax. Just another crazy busy week.

Can't think of anything else atm.

This post is for local friends who need a hand finding employment.
Hennepin Tech is hosting a workshop for job prep next week. The theme is: "Creating a successful Job Search in Today's Economy" The Flyer is here with the info and the Breakout session list here (Both require Adobe Reader).

I know they host job fairs also but I haven't heard when one of those will be at this time. I see no mention that this is only for currently enrolled students so unless I'm mistaken this is for anyone interested.

My shameless plug for the day.

That's the hope anyway.
Hoping certain things will finally start happening in my life.
If nothing else to lay the foundation for said things to happen.

Hey I need to give a shout out to zackfig. Happy Birthday! :3
And to anyone else I missed recently.
I'm bad that way. -_-
