It's not perfect, but is is very pleasing to the eye and really takes back the skyline in my opinion.
Welcome to SkyscraperCity

I have been following this thread for years to now and its great that the tower is finally coming to its completion.

Its going to be sad(but great at the same time) when this tower is completed because I have enjoyed coming on here and looking at its progress.

Honestly it really didn't snow a lot, maybe a good amount of snow showers but never anything over 2-3 inches.
