I woke up at 4:00 a.m., more excited than a kid going to the fair. The huge concrete pumping truck arrived at 5:30. The young driver spent the next 25 minutes walking over the foundation, carrying a remote control joy stick device, and practicing moving the boom with its concrete delivery tube that looks like an enormous elephant trunk. The pumping truck remains stationary, while individual concrete trucks arrive to fill and refill as needed. The boom is forty or fifty feet in the air, and must move in all directions over the foundation. Mike and his crew guide the flow of gunmetal gray wet concrete. Unbelievable. Here are a few quick pics.
