Getting buff with the CRC
When I was first handed a hard copy of the Columbia River Crossing’s draft Final Environmental Impact Statement, I knew I would be getting some serious biceps carrying it around.
The thing is a thin-sheeted, double-sided, 1,000-plus page bohemouth.
Which got me to wondering: Can I skip buying a weight set and just use this puppy instead?
I wagered that it weighs 10 pounds, kind like the “guess the weight of the pig at the fair” kind of thing.
So I thought I’d ask a few other folks I ran into while I was carrying the FEIS how much they thought it weighed.
Their guesses, and the real answer below:
- Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt: At least 10 pounds
- Columbian photographer Steven Lane: 7.5 pounds
- Vancouver City Councilor Jack Burkman: About 6 pounds
- Vancouver Transportation Policy Director Thayer Rorabaugh: 4.5 pounds
The real weight: 8.5 pounds! Wonder how many trees that is?
