I changed my ticket to fly directly to Arizona and skip the flight today to Kansas, then driving
Denver, then from Denver to Tucson. So, I have all day today and tomorrow here in Seattle. The Walberg’s get back around midnight tonight, so it will be nice to actually see them here.
It is sunny and clear here. This is really the first time I’ve seen the sun in a week. So I’m going to go explore East of here, over by Cougar Mountain. So, I don’t have much time here.
I’ve noticed this container ship just parked here this past week. I was wondering what the deal is, but then I saw this article at Marketwatch explaining there is a longshoremen’s labor dispute going on right now and the West coast shipping is being affected. I’m wondering if that is why the ship is just hanging here doing nothing? The article says that average salary for these guys is $147000 a year. I’m not sure what they are disputing?
Anyway, the article says everyday they don’t unload containers it costs the US economy $2.1 billion dollars. Man, they do have a lot of leverage it seems.
Anyway, just an interesting answer to a question I’ve had this past week.
Gonna just put some oil on my legs and ride sans knee warmers and leg warmers. Should feel great. Looking forward to riding new terrain.
