Year 2, Day 10: 7 November 2013

Because of the torrential rains yesterday, the concrete work that was supposed to be done had to be  postponed until today. I was off fighting the good fight most of the day and wasn't here to get pictures of the actual pouring of the concrete; but honestly, if you've been following this blog for the past couple of months, by this point you should be well versed in the fine art of concrete pouring. So here instead are some before-and-after shots. The first five pictures were taken about 8:00 this morning; the last three late this afternoon. The last two walls--the south and east--were poured today. 

A glimpse at the interior of the substation

The new concrete is shrouded in tarps while it cures. The bottom picture shows that the inside of the covers is lined with reflective foil to keep the heat in and speed up the curing process now that the weather has turned cold.
