Heavy Destruction Land

So, I spent some time today weaking havoc with [heavy construction equipment]( http://www.hitachiconstruction.com/en_US/cfd/construction/hitachi_const/docs/z axis330lc_general.html). One of my co-workers is tearing down his old house (and his _other_ house on the neighboring lot) in order to make way for a [new super-abode](http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=47.593696,-122.233876&spn=0.005311 ,0.007929&t=k&hl=en). Even a waterfront mansion doesn’t stand a chance against a 30-ton swing arm… especially when it is operated by me.
