Skywatch Friday - Cranes, Cranes, Cranes
There is a lot of building going on all over Nashville. Developers are putting up high-rise condominium towers all over the downtown area, or they're renovating old buildings and turning those into condominiums. Cranes dot the downtown skyline.
Here's an interesting fact: It takes a crane operator so long - almost 60 minutes - to get to his post (the white box just below the horizontal arm) that he stays there the entire day, even during break time. You can see in the smaller photo that the cranes tower over buildings that have 13 or more stories.
I took these photos last evening as we were on our way to a downtown event. For most of the day, the sky had been cloudy and grey, but around 5:00, the sun came out, and the then-cloudless sky turned blue.

COMING TOMORROW: I have a heart-warming and important story to share with you. Please stop back!
