Right now in NY: Snow + gusty winds = standstill at 1WTC.

Not to sound like a smart-ass, but when will the wind at a higher altitude not be an excuse for the markedly slower progress (or no progress) anymore? Is it windier up at the top of the building in the winter than it is in the spring?

They claim everything is progressing as planned so they either are doing some important work on the concrete core which is not visible from the outside or the officials are lying, which would be nor the first time nor the last time officials were lying, LOL

The winds haven't stopped 4WTC's work. In just the last week they've removed one crane and added another. Clearly there's a problem with the steel erection for T1. But they are still working. The cladding continues to go up. But it is a shame they haven't started new floors in over 6 weeks.

If there wasn't a month and a half delay just now the building would almost be topped out.

1WTC is a lot higher then 4WTC so the wind difference would be a bit different

I don't think so, from now it are all mechanical and observation floors which take much longer than normal office floors.

Sorry, but there's no better feeling than being in Central Park, on the Hudson, or anywhere in NY for that matter and seeing the snow build up!

Yes true, however what he is saying is that the building would have been much further along without the steel erection delay. Since November the steel has been going slow because since they hit floors 87 & 88 they took almost a month on those before the steel columns for floors 89 & 90 were raised in early December. It's more than obvious that the opening of Tower 1 will be pushed back a bit despite any official reports because even those have been proven to be false. The construction workers are the only people who know for certain when the Tower will top out or have an estimation when things will get done not the Port Authority.
