It was mid December in Seattle, a Saturday. There was rain and then there was more rain. And it happened again. The story repeated itself innumerable times...but then there was a break, the sun came out. This machine a Caterpillar 160h Grader was standing there, overlooking a freshly graded and paved road which was still wet from a mixture of the previous night's downfall and settling oil from the asphalt. It was the sort of serene setting that is perfect for late a autumn painting break before settling in for the coming wet winter.
