St Pauls, Westminster Bridge, CranesCranes are business confidence indicators.  

Downtown London is currently measuring 20 on the crane-scale of business confidence.     It’s unclear if the British crane exhibits the same migrational tendancies as the North American crane.

cabbie:   there are more cranes in Bellevue than anywhere else on the east coast

Last year experts predicted 60 cranes in the Puget Sound summer.  

“tower crane activity now is similar to the technology building boom of 1999-2000 when we were very busy in the Northwest … but the difference is that today the activity level is pretty intense all across North America, including a lot of high-rise condo construction.”

This summer there is ‘record’ downtown Bellevue city construction.   Inbetween,   in  November, tragically,  one crane fell over.  

Cranes have seasonal behaviours,   either hibernating in the winter or going south to sunnier climes.
