2009 Winter Photos - Lighting the LO

A major winter project involved installing the conduit, wire, and light fixtures in what is now known as the LO (logistics) arch...something that seemed impossible given the cold temperatures which could cause wiring insulation to get brittle and crack off...not to mention electricians and their helpers getting frostbite. Still, thanks to some rolling scaffold on the LO deck, along with some major help from folks who were not electicians, the lighting project was a major winter success! Here are a few pictures...
