    That's one of the mid pieces, #7 I believe, it's being stored on top of one of the cooling towers. #1 is one of the last pieces to come onsite. Tuesday 12-18 is the date for it to go up.

    Looks like a 'spool of thread' - ok,ok...... enough already with the 'sewing' metaphors. HeeeHeee

    BTW. Are there any 'web cams' out there that are particularly well positioned for viewing the hoisting and assembly process?

    They'll be coming onsite every day from now on. Not sure how many go to the top to be stored but a couple more yes.

    Have they moved the biggest base section to the site yet? If not, do we know when it is scheduled to happen

    I believe it will be done in one shot...that it comes off the barge on Tuesday 12-18, comes into the site and goes up and into position in one shot. That would mean landing it at night so it may sit on the ground until Wednesday morning. If I hear of more detail I'll post it.
