Robinson Warehouse - No Christmas break
It was a beautiful day after Christmas yesterday, and as you can see the work on the Robinson Warehouse is continuing. I don't know how much time they deliberately took off, or how much they might have lost to inclement weather, but they were hard at work yesterday. It's getting hard for me to distinguish at a glance of pictures like this between the remaining structure and the condo complex behind it. I still don't think they're going to finish by the 31st, but they'll be darned close.

Here's the closer look. It's weird how little there is left, isn't it? I've been watching this for weeks now and it gets less and less real in some ways to me. It's like the memory of the place is going along with the bricks and rebar.
I don't know what exactly that crane was doing, but I'll take any excuse to show the basement again. Have I mentioned lately how amazed I am that no one has told me to get lost?
The driveway is a warren of activity.
The southwest view. I measure the progress here by the number of windows in the second floor. Here there's seven. Last time, there was thirteen. That's progress.
I was blocked again from taking a picture on Allen Parkway - there was a big truck blocking the view, and I wasn't crazy enough to sneak inside the fence for the shot. So, I climbed the grassy hill just east of the warehouse property for this shot.

I'll check back again on Friday. If the weather stays nice this week, there may not be much left.

What time was it? My girlfriend and I drove by there about 6pm and saw someone out there taking pictures and I wondered since I'd seen pics of it on your blog. :)

Not quite that late - about 3 or 4 PM, as I recall. If the person you saw was wearing a gray sweatshirt, then it was probably me.
