Polar Vortex???

The third 500K gallon tank in Ashley is nearly complete. This picture was taken just before the polar vortex (fancy name for cold weather). Since then, the forth ring has been installed completing the side walls. Apparently, it's difficult to work with steel in a -30 degree wind chill and the tank crew went home for a week to stay warm. Can't say that I blame them.


Try to take a guess as to what's going on in the photo below. Have the ships tied off to shore and are in the process of burying the treasure chest? Is the Good Year blimp on the other end of the tie lines? Actually this is the center of tank 3. The ropes tied off to the stakeh hold the side walls steady until the rafters are in place. Oh, and that's a tool box not a treasure chest.
