Safe

I'm lucky in that my job allows me to see and get up close to some really neat things.  Case in point:  one week ago, Plains Township, Main and Carey.  The safe from the old bank building here was picked up by a crane, placed on a flatbed and hauled away.  The safe was more than 47,000 pounds of concrete and steel.  The demolition crew made it look easy.

It was a great, old building.  Unfortunately, it was allowed to deteriorate and demolition was the only option.  It's a story we've seen too many times before, and there will be more to come.
