俺正在紧张的盯着俺院子里的3棵特大特高的树,让风折磨得死去活来。。。

上帝啊,让它们多撑一会儿,给俺个机会明天就找专业人士灭了它们!!

我聪明啊,春天时我就已经请人把后院的三棵参天大树砍了,没有飓风之忧了。

32万人没电啊!

A total of 327,360 customers were without power by midafternoon, MacLeod said.

还好,大树被刮得呜呜的。掉了根树枝,没什么事。

电脑还能撑2小时,手机有备用电池充电,问题不大。另有备用气炉,做点吃的没问题。

好消息是,老四川今天晚上开。

这个飓风没有预报的凶险,就是刮点风,下点雨,有些地方断了电,不过没有人挨饿,如此而已。主席平安, 开心。 happy

还没电,隔壁一条街昨天先停电,昨天晚上就有了。附近大街有房子被自家大树砸中了,不过应该没人伤亡,房子没跨。也许没电跟这家有关?回头上独家照片。

昨天老四川爆满,服务生后来干脆就对外说不开了。

现在只能靠手机上网了。

新统计, 有70万人停电. 希望早点修好. 今天天气不错. 还不来电, 就在后院camping吧 牛

Almost 700,000 electric customers were in the dark last night, and roads big and small turned into ponds, forcing traffic to be diverted.

美国太回归自然了。昨天是生平第一次担心房子被大风给刮跑了。

这么一场不大的风就让这么多人断电。美国的基础设施实在是太差了。

听收音机说, 有人的房子的siding是铝的, 电线被打断掉到墙上. 他不知道, 早上开门, 坐在porch上, 手靠着扶手, 就给电死了.

In this case, unless the 'change' actually comes, the nightmare of big dig will last forever.

For an example, the town of Waltham, on highway 128 exit 27, the winter street exit, the upgrade of a 2-lane bridge to a 4-lane one, plus the rebuild of highway ramps have last at least 10 years and counting.

Everybody went to Waltham Costco knew the history.

The system of government sponsored project needs a total rehaul. It is very unlikely to happen under the current democratic president.

Government sponsored projects suppose less efficient than private projects. One reason is there are more stake holders. No matter who is president, there is nothing to do with this. I know nothing about the project in Waltham. But it could be reasons.

I agree. Another reason I believe is those projects have to hire union workers and these workers get paid by hour. The longer time a project takes, the more pay they get. Why hurry? I have seen a project lasted more than two years to finish in Somerville. It took me only 100 days to get a much bigger project than this one done because I paid my people by job instead of by hour. They had to work harder to get the job done faster then move to another job fore more money. This is the difference.

No perfect solution.

Paid by hour, the job will be well done. Paid by job, it could be quality problems because workers will try to finish it as soon as possible.

Partially agree with you. If you pay your people by job, then you need to have a set of strict regulations, rules and also a very good quality control team to control the quality to pass the inspection before the job is officially finished and put in use. There are some junk projects in China but the cause is not how they pay the workers. Corruption plays a big role in the project inspection procedure.
小草 at 8/31/2011 23:25 快速引用
Quality control by inspection is a fantasy, esp. in non-construction projects. Working ethics cannot be controlled. That's why a Ford manufactured in Germany has better quality than one manufactured here in US.
