Forest Lake Skyscape Construction Continues

Residents and visitors alike do a double take as they pass through Forest Lake, Minnesota this December as construction continues on the new water tower.

Though the photo is not strikingly different from the
original I posted last week, if you look closely there are some marked differences. Note the yellow appendage to the tank bowl. Yes, folks that is a ladder. No fear of heights allowed when working on this project. Can you even imagine taking a hike up that ladder? Yikes.
Before the 12 plus inches of powdery snow that made skiers, snowboarders and snowmobilers alike shout in exuberant exclamation hit Forest Lake this weekend, I snapped a shot of one of the huge sections on the ground that was being prepared to be lifted into place for the top of the tower. It is directly under the arrow. Can you see the edge of it coming up near the crane? It's HUGE!

Hopefully, I will be in town when one of the giant sections is raised into place. Of course, I think with all of the snow, it will be a day or two until this piece is dug out.
