In our last post you had a chance to see the 815 Pine tower crane at work. In today's photo the crane is at rest as the sun sets in the northwest. If you've had a few chances to notice construction cranes you might have noticed that, when not busy at work, they actually are pretty good wind direction indicators. Apparently there is no need to lock them in place when the operator leaves. Well, why would you? So, they end up turning with the wind. The long arm of the crane points in the direction the wind is blowing. Now you know.
Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
