Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
The spire that will sit atop 1 World Trade Center is on its way to the site for installation.
It's 408 feet tall, and has to be transported in 18 sections that weigh between 5 and more than 67 tons. Eight of the sections have to be taken by barge 1,500 nautical miles from Canada on the Atlantic Salvor. It left Quebec on Nov. 16 and is expected next week at Port Newark in New Jersey. The remaining sections are expected to arrive via truck in mid-December.
When the spire is installed, the tower will stand 1,776 feet tall, making it the tallest in the western hemisphere. It will take about three months to install.
