Doesn't that just make you pucker up a little?

@stlsurveyor- we went down into the bowels of the beast to hook up trace wires for some locates. THAT was cool! We actually walked thru a room, under the big pipes spilling in the video. As in under neath, reach up and touch them - they were covered in condensation, and that room was pretty cool, temperature-wise. And really LOUD.

if you zoom in a bit, you can see Chevy Chase working his way up the dam face. He climbed Hoover Dam a while back. "Free Solo", pssht!

JA, PLS, SoCal

The ops engineer who was our guide/ babysitter while on site said that the spill is running at 10%. The last time it ran at 100% was 1954, and it scoured the opposite bank to bedrock and washed out the road on this side. Amazing design and construction work. All without a calculator, P6, or environmental permits...
