7wtc gives me the feeling of being made out of ice... the more I see it, the more I like it no matter how boxy.

FYI - The ironworkers on top of 1WTC worked 10hrs Thursday, Friday and Saturday & 8hrs on Sunday.

They welded column splices on 88 and moment connections on 89 & 90 today. They finished spreading the deck on 90. Weather permitting, we will get three trucks of steel delivered tomorrow. That has to be shaken out before erecting.

Can anyone describe what it is like looking at the 1WTC in real life?. Is it immensely towering that it's mind blowing?, Incredible?. Does it look really large?. I just thought it would be interesting to find out a perspective.

Are you working on top? Or in which way are you involved in the project? (if you may tell? )

Anyway, thanks a lot for the inside info, always greatly appreciated!

I am not an iron worker but am I involved in the day to day management of project.

PS- The winds were 36MPH this morning, hence the cranes were shutdown, but they are back in operation now as winds have dropped below 30.
