Across from the Winco parking lot this morning, in north Spokane, there was a massive land clearing/logging operation going on. I marveled at the capabilities of the giant track hoe, machinery has always gotten my attention. Once a contractor always a contractor, ya know. Anyhow, the mind gears start to roll around my mind as I wonder.
The land is on the corner of N. Nevada and E Jay Ave, in Spokane WA. This building is described as the Spokane International Academy on Google maps.
Is the school expanding?
It was a swath of land fully covered with old pines. In one day this track hoe had all of them laying uprooted in piles of lumber (decks) over 20 ft tall along the edge of the property. Wow. Take a look at the video to see how high the stack of logs is compared to the cars going by.
Then I notice a broken-down RV parked in the back forty of the Winco parking lot. A vehicle that has certainly seen better days. There is no license on it. The windshield, door glass, and even the window in the overhead sleeper are all broken out. It must be cold as heck to sleep in there.
There is no license and a shopping cart full of bags and garbage is parked next to it. There is a bike laying under the rear axle. Just then the back door opened and a hand threw a bowl of liquid onto the parking lot. Oooooo. A few moments later a man stepped out bringing a walker with him, he squared himself up and proceeded to walk up to the street corner to stand with a sign. You can see him on the left side of this picture.
Was this RV previously parked in those trees?
It doesn’t look like it could be driven very far. I guess it could be one way to get the homeless off of your land, simply clear cut it and move them off.
