Images of the Centralia Steam Plant

Last Friday, after a shift on the job in the area, I visited the Centralia Steam Plant. I watched for nearly a couple hours in the evening light as dusk and then darkness fell. Here's some timelapse video footage and a still shot of the scene.

Awesome Clouds at Nisqually Refuge

In between storms, before the gale force winds of Thursday night, I visited Nisqually Nat'l Wildlife Refuge. I caught some great clouds, color, light. Happy Holidays!

"Extra" from the Olympian

I've tried numerous times to get the Olympian to stop delivering/throwing the "Extra" in my driveway. I've had as many as three sitting in my driveway when I get home. Don't know how to make it stop. It's a sure telltale for theives when they sit in my driveway for days when I'm out of town. I'm thinking of starting a petition or contacting my state representative. Any thoughts? Anyone else as frustrated as I am? Maybe stop shopping at the establishments that advertise through the "Extra"
