Eileen Gunn sez, "This is a moving video of the house of a friend of mine being torn down on Capitol Hill in Seattle to make way for a light rail station. I drove by the house tonight and it was gone. I thought, 'At least I don't have to watch it being torn down.' But when I got home, I found she'd sent me an email: 'Life is so strange.

The video is by Brad Kevelin, on the CHS Capitol Hill Seattle blog."
