Tonka Trucks

I am a kid in a sandbox...

Well, I am kid watching a kid in a sandbox. But it's still cool.

I am not a high rankiing person in my company. I just happen to have a cubicle that is against a wall, and that wall happens to have a window. But that window is pretty neat sometimes.

Right now, for instance.

Those of you that don't know, it snowed this past weekend. So the parking lots that I look down on (I'm on the 8th floor), have a lot of snow piles.

Right now, there is a front end loader (the BIG kind, not the backyard kind) that is filling its scoop up with snow, and dropping it into the back of a dump truck. A couple scoops will fill the dump truck. Once full, the truck drives away to the back end of the lot, and dumps the snow into a larger pile. Meanwhile, a second dump truck is in position with the front end loader...

It is the quintessential Tonka Truck sandbox routine.

And I'm far enough away that they are toy-sized.

All in all, very satisfying.

Oh that's fun...I don't have a window now, but I was on the 9th floor of an office looking directly into hotel rooms once.

That was interesting in its own way. Maybe even blogworthy...
