What amazes me is how HUGE some of the machinery and things they work with are. A few weeks ago, I was stopped at a light next to a semi-truck that was hauling a number of spools similar to the one in this photo. I drive a Mini Cooper, and I swear those spools are bigger than my car. I imagine the guy in the photo is at least six-feet tall, so that spool is close to seven feet in diameter.
Re: Construction of condo towers . . . I have mentioned this before, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out who is going to buy the condos in the towers being built both in Nashville and other large cities around the country. I heard over the weekend that a few developers have decided not to build the previously approved condo towers, which I think is good because there are so many already in different stages.
Would you rather have a downtown condo or a home in the 'burbs?
