men sitting on crane assembly

they were here before dawn, moving the blue container back inside the site, inside the parking deck to be. when i got up the guys were breaking off the forms. the sound of 30 men hamering, tap tap, almost click click. by the time we went for the dogwalk the crane was here, halfway out into the street. the crane was parked on the ramp, and the pointy end of the crae was attached to the cap and swivel body. it went from the bottom of the ramp to the street, and 20′ out into the middle of the street. they were attaching cables and connections to a barlike thing that rose out the side of the crane cab. while i was gone they raised it, and it’s sitting there on the ramp, towering above the trees. it’s way long, and there’s a short little crossbar on it. they blocked the street with the terex which helped to hoist the back end of it so they could slot pieces together. the guys were sitting on the structure when we came by.
