I meant that they were there for over fifteen minutes, lol. Camera usually refreshes after a few.

That column is the spandrel beam that will link the SE and NE corners. Their was rain today, so they halted crane work.

The webcam sites must be getting way too much traffic these days. Very annoying.

Yes because more visible stuff is getting done on a daily basis now.

it didn't rain here today, by the way--so any delays weren't because of weather.

SSP and WNY forumers said there was rain. I'm sure even a high percentage threat of rain would make OSHA nervous about having these cranes hauling steel thru the air though.

Also, WNY forum reports the 18000 crane has been inspected and is ready to be shipped over to the WTC from Kearny, NJ. Hopefully it'll be there next week.

Dissmantilling? I think not! Looks as though that steel on back of tractor is about to rise from big red though.

ok. weather.com says precipitation for yesterday is 0.00--
fine, it may have lightly drizzled for a few minutes, but my point is, if that type of 'weather' is enough to slow progress, that's kind of crazy. It's bright and sunny now outside and that beam still sits, so maybe it didn't have anything to do with weather.

Are you sure it's the same beam? Doesn't look like they're slowing down, compare to 2 days ago

They add even more steel on the core and there's a new beam behind the big red crane and an horizontal beam on the right of it

Official National Weather Service Precipitation totals for yesterday:

Central Park - 0.01
LaGuardia Airport - 0.01
JFK Airport - 0.01
Newark Airport - 0.03

I see that they delivered the last of the columns for the NE corner, Big Red took it off the truck and laid it on the floor. Meanwhile the big spandrel beam is still sitting on the truck on Vesey Street. I wonder if they need to put up the column first to stabilize the corner before the beam goes up?

wow. my point is that 'Central Park - 0.01', that 10 minute mist we had yesterday, had nothing to do with whether or not that piece of steel, which still sits in the sun, went up or not

Finally seeing some decent progress, but still too quick to blurt out excuses. ......uhhh....complexity underground!......uhhh....the MTA!......uhhh...they had to do a redesign 4 years ago.....uhhh, what else...OSHA! rain! yeah, that's the ticket!

The center beam above the Northeast and Southeast sections is hanging in the air, about to be installed! Hope it fits.

It doesn't look as big as I thought it would be, being such a long area to span.
