They were knocking things down until something like 2 am. Good grief. At least the dust was blowing back in their face.

Not everybody loves digging ditches in 100 degree weather like you. I don't blame anybody wanting to work after dark when the temperatures spike.

Aren't there any ordinances regarding when construction and demolition can occur? I find it hard to believe that soebody can just go about knocking a building down in the middle of the night. But then again, I have been gone for a while.

Fuck, we did that even while you were here. Did the Madison-Lennox begin in the middle of the night on a Sunday or Saturday?

That was different. That was an emergency demolition due to structural defects and risk of harm, remember...

In Las Vegas they only do construction/road work in the middle of the night. At least when I was there, anyway. I can't blame them, it's 100-110 degrees every day.
By using the El Dorado Atmospheric and Oceanic temperatures thermal map. I caculated the contrary direction where the polar jet stream is going and it didn't look pretty.

Except they were working on it all day, too. And, all day today. All day every day, even when I was out digging ditches in 100-degree weather. Last couple of days, though, it seems like there's a rush on to finish and it makes me think they're behind schedule.

I'd also guess the fancy excavator with demolition shears/ pulverizer has A/C.

I'm pretty sure there are, probably dust control, too, which they've more or less just started. In Detroit, though, there are rules for some people and rules for other people.

While there likely is AC in the fancy excavator, the support personnel are much less likely to enjoy the same comforts. Also, you can get permits for working outside of stated city ordinances. Whether or not they were obtained is another story.

Then it's probably too bad the support personnel have to work all day in 100-degree temps. cleaning up what the excavator knocks down in the middle of the night.

The excavator just started up again. I wonder if the thing will be down by morning.
