'Green Highway' In The Works

Happy Earth Day. Are you doing anything to mark the date? I'm going to a 'Visioning Process' meeting to celebrate. More on that later, after I actually get through the meeting.

In the meantime though, Here's something earth-related for Earth Day: there’s a new initiative under way called the 'West Coast Green Highway.' It involves Washington, California, Oregon and British Columbia working together to promote the use of alternative fuels. Here's more information about this from the Washington State Department of Transportation Blog.
