WOW!!!

It is impressive that it's raining at street level but the tower is tall enough to get snow. It looks like a snowy mountain.

Actually the temperaure falls 6C every 1000m in humid conditions and 10C every 1000m in low humidity. If we go by your calculations the top of Mt Everest would be 290C lower then the ground lol

What possible sensitivities could people have against this final phase of construction?

From what I know pretty much nothing is happening right now. But a year ago November was similar to this year's. I don't know why but it looks like November is the worst month for progress.

The basic rule of thumb is that air temperature drops 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit for every 1,000-foot gain in elevation.
