Bertha, and no, not one of the Butt sisters

If you hadn't heard, Seatle has been dealing with their own "Big Dig" so to speak, but today is the day the drill rig breaks through, after two years setting broke down.
If you see what looks like fog, I think it's cement dust from the drill, it clears off and on.

Just one more project forced on the people of Washington.  The people voted it down. 
A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Only 1.7 miles long, and if this wasn't enough waste, they want to cap I-5 with a bubble enclosure.
