At the moment KPI shows both crane lines dangling down near the mast sections:

And EarthCam indeed shows both cranes pointed to the north.

It's suppose to be extremely windy later today:

Definitely stretched out. The rooftops of WFC and 40 Wall Street are very distorted. I should do this to pictures of me. "Look how tall and thin I look from this angle."

It's indeed clearly visible, and so is the Trump World Tower. It's also good to see that 2WTC will fill a huge hole.

WTC workers leave graffiti of defiance, hope on skyscraper rising at ground zero in NY

"The scribbles appear on beams, walls and stairwells of the skyscraper that's rising to replace the terror-wrecked towers.

They range from tributes to 9/11 victims to off-color sketches and poetry.

The words "Change is from within" are scrawled on an iron beam in the 104-story high rise that soars above the trade center site.

One of the last beams for One World Trade Center hoisted up last year has a special handwritten message: "We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger!" It's signed "Barack Obama."

Ironworker Kevin Murphy says the graffiti is a way for workers to get their feelings out following 9/11."

I THINK they did lift the second mast section this morning. But I can't be sure because the KPI cam is washed out. If you look at the 11:01 AM shot, you can see the load spreader, etc. If they didn't lift it, they must have been testing the cables or something.
