Thursday morning, and much of Friday, it rained. This pretty much slowed down the dirt-moving progress (mud does that) on the upper lot.

But, it didn't stop the fleet from coming in for Sea Fair. And it didn't stop the passive protest (and police scrutiny) of at least one sailboat crew who pointed out we don't need inspectors to find WOMD in Elliott Bay.

The USS Shiloh, for instance, is a Tomahawk missile launching cruiser. And the USS Bonhomme Richard amphibious assault ship, all $760M and 840 feet of it, is a sea-going platform for attack helicopters, Harrier attack jets, and amphibious assault vehicles.

The Coast Guard patrolled while Chief Seattle sprayed, and the Blue Angels afforded us an in-city view of their power precision, arcing off in the distance, and streaking by pretty darn close to my balcony.

I look forward to more dirt moving.
