    When the fountains are running during the winter, will the water create "steam" rising from the footprints? ... That would be disturbing to see.

    No doubt the memorial the memorial will disturb. Even without steam rising, seeing water crashing into the pits will be a macabre reminder of what happened. Forced contemplation for a generation of distracted Americans.

    Workers hardly take a break while the 50th tree is lowered.


    The White Swamp Oak is lowered into the Memorial Plaza.


    Worker putting the finishing touches on the North Memorial Pool.


    North Memorial Pool.( I think this is a mistake i believe it is the south pool)


    These rivets at the Memorial Pools will make the water twirl as it falls into the pools.

    You're able to get so close. I'm jealous. The water-twirling rivets are an interesting note.

    If the air temp is low enough there well be a "smoke on the water" effect, but I doubt it well be great enough to send clouds of vapor rising from the voids.



    I think y'all are grossly overestimating the amount of water flowing over the weir (that's what they call that thing with the ribs). Think veil of tears, not Niagara falls.

    I've seen a brief, older thread regarding the 1993 memorial. Will they include that memorial with this also?
