Bleacher Reconstruction Update - February 17

It's COLD today!

Actually, for mid-February, it's not bad -- 30 degrees. But compared to the last six weeks, and particularly yesterday which seemed like a spring day with thunderstorms, it seems quite cold.

Not as cold as it's going to be tomorrow, though -- temperatures in the teens. And so, I thought today would be a good day to make another photo update. You'll see some significant changes since last weekend.

The timeline has also been updated.

Top: new CF elevator; closer view of elevator and elevator shaft (sorry it's tilted, I had just stepped on some ice that I thought was solid, but it cracked!); RF seats near my old section; underside of walkway in RF corner

Middle: the "knothole" (doesn't the field look great?); underneath right-center with new wall section being built; another view of elevator; wall section on Waveland just west of CF

Bottom: detail section of wall on Waveland (note the top pieces, identical to the old ones, as well as the 'layering' effect of the brick, quite nice looking); LF showing height of top row in left-center; looking east on Waveland showing height of walkway in corner in relation to top row of seats; box of "corner" and "ender" pieces for the top of the brick wall (taken at old car wash on Waveland; there are about 100 of these boxes there)
