When it Rains by Shane O’Brien 2016
featuring photos of Iron Erected at the Port of L A.
“When it Rains” by Shane O’Brien is the soundtrack for this video/slideshow highlighting the changing environments in the Ports of America. The Ports are heading down that road of becoming fully automated. This presentation features the “Crane Maintenance Building” 2016 which is to service the fully automated ground vehicles, which is the self contained delivery vehicle receiving cargo shipping containers from the over head cargo cranes, for delivery to a line of gantry cranes on wheels. Those Gantry Cranes load these containers to awaiting trucks, like the big rig trucks you see everywhere on the roads today, as they are making container deliveries to our big warehouse type stores. This building is where the maintenance happens for the Automated Ground Vehicles.
In the not too distant future, no persons will be needed to off load Super Sized Container Ships except the actual container crane operator and the “Lashing Gang” from the Longies in our Ports.
The song itself has nothing to do with the construction site or the crew, but, and I repeat “But”, it might have something to do with that construction crew after all…
By Golly, it is written and performed by… The Ironworker foreman in the gang erecting this building belonging to the Port of Los Angeles . “When it Rains” (c)2000 Shane O’Brien; is simply a song really enjoyed by Shane O’Brien, going way back to when it was first written by this performer in 2000. The Union Ironworkers featured in this video are from Local 433 Los Angeles, CA. The Contractor is Metro Builders and Engineers Inc. from Orange County, California
