Re: Richard Russell
sounds cool. OIT, here. We didn’t build stealth bombers, but before infrastructure was abandoned (the agency I worked for cut 8,000 engineers in the mid 1990s), I worked for the Corps of Engineers, what used to be the North Pacific Division. Projects like the American River Dam System and oddly enough, a dam in Colombia (Miel I Dam Hidroelectric). They shipped their rock, sand, gravel, etc. to us and we did concrete mixes, beams, etc. from it. One time Fort Huachuca did the same, including a very large black widow on the underside of the lid of one of the drums of 3/4-1/4. Every year we’d break one of Bonneville’s test cylinders and even after about 60 years (at that time) the concrete was still gaining strength. No worries about a 9 from a Cascadia quake knocking out that dam. Others like Lake Chelan Dam or John Day, not nearly so sturdy.
