Oredock demolition update.
As you can see, they've finished roughly one-third of the demolition work on the top section of the dock. The crew is expected to keep working until winter kicks in, then they'll go on hiatus until spring.
All the chutes on the western side have been lowered (well, except for one which you can see on the far right) -- I read in today's paper that when they started the demolition work, there were 300 on the dock (with one or two missing from each side), each weighing 10,000 pounds. Holy crap. It'd be interesting to get the opportunity to walk up to one laid out on the ground or something, to get an idea of how big they actually are.
