Going Up With a Crane

Today was the dry run for putting the spire in place. Apparently custom made spires don’t come pre-drilled. πŸ™‚

The crew put the spire in place to make a template for setting the bolts when it is put in place for good. As of now the capping off is scheduled for Monday, with Richard Dudley in attendance. If the weather and my schedule cooperates (and they don’t run me off the site… πŸ™‚ ) I will be there to bring you photos. Stay tuned.

There are plenty more pictures of the event on the Flickr site.
