#1 pouring concrete have nothing to do with our discussion ( he just provided example)

#2 core suppose to lag behind steel with this tower, same thing happen with WTC7

on other hand, I live 2 hours away and it's raining like a bieeaaaatch today

It's pretty crappy out, and I'm about 25 miles (direct route, that is) away. It's on and off pouring buckets, so I don't blame them. Still, it sucks that the weather messed things up. C'est la vie. :l

It would be suicide to hang steel in the rain and the fact that it is against OSHA regs to do so.

Rain really shouldn't be a factor with cement, unless its coming down hard.

Rodhano those are some nice shots. I really like the second from last one, it shows the second floor very well.

I've seen shows on TV were they've poured concrete under water and it cured fine. Now granted, that concrete wasn't supporting a 1400-foot tower, but I think it's likely that only steel work was scheduled for today, and that's why we didn't see any activity.

I did notice they were stockpiling some memorial steel around the south pool and SW corner. So once the rain stops we should see a lot of steel installed quickly.

Do they work on the weekend to catch up if a day gets totally washed out? Forecast isn't so rosy for this weekend either...

Next 3 days they expect Sunny/Partly Cloudy conditions so we should expect a lot of work to be done and last large beams to be placed. . Any new yorkers get your cameras ready

We are certainly getting our share this month....we are in the 7th wettest October in recorded history and it's getting ready to rain for two days straight.

You can go muddin' in my driveway....

also saw beekman place, which is looking good too.

nice and sunny so somebody with a digital camera should get pictures!
