The forecast for Saturday is 38F and mostly sunny. But it is supposed to be pretty windy as well.

The helicopter appeared this morning at 9 am, and lifted the bottom collar for the spire into position, then flew away.

Spire installation aborted after early attempts due to high winds.

Trump spire installation canceled again

Another attempt on Monday is out of the question. The city permit for the installation was for two days only, and the presence of hundreds of cars and pedestrians in the area around the skyscraper on a weekday would create a safety hazard.

As a result, the installation may have to wait until next year--unless city officials quickly issue another permit for next weekend. That might happen, Snyder said, because the helicopter for the installation is scheduled to remain at Midway Airport through next Sunday morning. But other factors, including harsh winter weather, could push the installation into 2009.

Perhaps on Sunday, but looking at the weather forecast, I seriously doubt anyone will be flying choppers in Chicago tomorrow.

I've been monitoring this morning to see if the spire was being installed and unfortunately it is not. The picture below was taken from Howard Orloff webcam about 5 minutes ago, which works very well to see if the spire is being installed:
