T-Rex returns, devouring silos at UofL

Watching the silos succumb to the massive jaws of the all-powerful demorent demolition equipment takes one back to the prehistoric days when creatures like the Tyrannosaurus Rex roamed the Earth, devouring everything in their path.Dino2

A silo doesn’t stand a chance when the equipment operator gets one in its sight. Slowly, ever so slowly, like T-Rex, the predator inches toward its target. The victim, no matter how large or small, is unable to resist or flee, frozen in time, awaiting its demise, just another mouthful for a monster with an unrestrained appetite.

The devastation occurs in painfully slow motion, in plain sight of thousands of motorists on I-65, a real-life drama that can’t help but distract even the most safety-conscious drivers.

Someone once said we all have a dinosaur deep within us just trying to get out. History is either being destroyed or made on the University of Louisville campus this summer.
