The saga of the sunken crab boat in Penn Cove continues.  An additional very large crane arrived during the night, having been brought from Lake Washington through the Ballard Locks.  We have been standing down at the bottom of our property this morning with our cups of coffee watching the preparation going on.  Apparently, there are about 50 people currently involved, and when it is raised sometime today, there may be as many as 80, according to news reports.  Sometime today, the road out front will be blocked to traffic, and helicopters will circle above to watch for leaks of fuel, as it is raised.  Wish I had my camera.  But the news media will probably provide lots of photos later.  Oh! They just blocked the road to traffic - gotta run and see what is happening.  More later...
