Water Water Everywhere!

The Lake Union water taxi may yet have a chance! As part of Seattle's grand plan to "bridge the gap" (between what?), crews are resurfacing Dexter Avenue North. Part of that plan seems to include a rapid transit path to Lake Union... for boats...

But seriously: right now water - some of it knee high - is streaming past my building at 9th and Mercer on all four sides! This main broke right in front of the King5 TV studios. A good slide show is available at their site. The Seattle Times reports that:

About two blocks away, Mayor Greg Nickels canceled a news conference scheduled at 9 a.m. to highlight major improvements to city roads.

It's too bad I didn't bring my canoe to work today!
