A Visit To The Resodding Project

It's barely 40 degrees in Chicago today, but with the new field at Wrigley nearly done, I decided to take another visit there.

I went up to the knothole to take a couple of photos as I did on Wednesday. There was a security guard standing there; he's mostly there to make sure people walking on the sidewalk don't get run over by the forklifts coming out to get the sod and bring it inside. I wanted to stand where he was to take a photo, so I asked him if I could do that.

Instead, he motioned me inside, where I took several of the photos below. He also told me the laying of the sod will be finished tomorrow, after which they will put that "cover" on which will keep the sod warm enough to "take" during the winter. They should be finished, as they had hoped, by Thanksgiving.
