Oh I'm so bad about keeping my blog current! I'm sorry about that. I'm just sure that you don't need to hear about my unexplained all-over body swelling (that kept me from my torch for a week) or the YET ANOTHER bout of strep throat that has kept the kids home for most of this past week--SO....I procrastinate! :-)
There IS something blog worthy going on in our fair city that will even be made into a National Geographic show at some point I believe. There are crews in Downtown Des Moines THIS very minute preparing to move a 750 ton building !
It's the biggest mega-move to take place in America this year! Jeremy Patterson is the head of this moving crew. Pretty exciting.
My husband has been downtown with our 7 year-old (Quentin)since 7 this morning (scheduled moving start time). Supposedly it's slated to take about 8 hours for this move even though they are only going a few blocks with this building.
It's after 9am now and my husband just called and said they were going to try to drive to higher ground to get a better view.
Whew. I'll keep you posted.
