Dams have been in the news lately. Here's Morris Shepard (Possum Kingdom) Dam, near Mineral Wells, Texas "Located 33 miles northwest of Mineral Wells, is nearly one-half mile long and 196 feet high. Built at a cost of $7,000,000.00. It contains 730,000 square feet of water. The lake is 65 miles long with 310 miles of scenic shore line. It has power plant capacity of 25,000 KWH Electrical Energy and was completed in 1941." Constructed between 1936 and 1941, this dam impounded the Brazos River to create the Possum Kingdom Reservoir. It was named after Texas Senator Morris Shepard, who ensured funding for the project. CCC Company 2888 began work at Possum Kingdom State Park in May 1941, where the men cleared the park area and shoreline, built campsites and picnic tables, and constructed roads until July 1942. It was the last CCC project in Texas.

The world's most expensive countries to live in were calculated by MoveHub based on a range of costs in including the price of groceries, transport, bills, restaurants and how much renting somewhere to live is.

One of the priciest countries on the list, Switzerland, frequently tops lists of the best places to live thanks to great infrastructure, healthcare and a clean environment. However, all this comes at a price and it is the most expensive place in Europe to live. ๐Ÿ“ท:Jetsetter

Buzz happening around our project in Vigo, Spain, this week! A new high-speed rail and commercial hub for the city, connecting the Galician coast to Madrid, Porto, and beyond. Vialia Vigoโ€™s narrow site negotiates a 55ft (17m) drop in elevation, sloping from a residential area down towards Vigoโ€™s city center to the north. The undulating roof-scape extends from the street to become a public plaza, whose surface folds downward to reveal the atrium at the heart of the station. In one broad architectural gesture, this fluid surface establishes formal continuity from plaza to station and unites the projectโ€™s disparate program elements.

Water surges and sprays into the air above the broken spillway at Oroville Dam in northern California, USA. Many of you may have seen this story in the news this past week and our friends @nearmap flew above the site yesterday to capture imagery of the area. Hereโ€™s a quick summary of whatโ€™s going in Oroville: On February 7th, after an extended period of heavy rain, a crater appeared on the damโ€™s spillway (the structure that enables the controlled release of water from the reservoir above the dam). By February 10, more surging water increased the size of the hole to 300 feet (91 m) wide, 500 feet (152 m) long and 45 feet (14 m) deep. By February 12th, an emergency evacuation was ordered for more than 100,000 residents in low-lying areas beneath the dam. Now, with more rain forecasted for the coming week, there is a significant construction effort underway to reinforce the damโ€™s emergency spillway. Costs to fully repair the damage have been estimated at $200 million. /// Created by @benjaminrgrant

"Aww you guys, I'm happy it's Friday as well!"

There was a dangerously large pothole/ gaping chasm of doom near The Bicycle Tree that has bothered me for years, even before I moved to Santa Ana. A few days ago, I submitted a complaint to the city, and today, it was filled. There is literally no part of me that thought that would actually work. The moral of the story is either "miracles happen every day" or "complaining works".

Much better! I'm quite pleased with this image #cranes #construction #frisco #texas #infrastructure #growth #sunset

Today I woke up with a light heart and with a happy soul. I am overflowing with positivity on the good things coming my way. I can feel that better things are coming for me sooner. And Iโ€™m gonna feed it to finally harvest it in time. Iโ€™m on my way! Good morning, earthlings! Youโ€™re doing a great job today!
