McGuire Scaffold-Watch! Week: ???? + 41

OK, finally a different-ish photo of the McGuire. I just walked a little further down 2nd Ave. and let it fly. As you can see, the scaffold is still there. I didn't detect very much activity at all. There was just this loud hissing sound coming from around the sixth floor. God knows whether it was part of the problem or part of the solution. Otherwise the dwarf army was not in sight. Most of them are kicking mole people ass elsewhere at the moment. All that drilling in the area has brought them to the surface. Who can blame the dwarf army? The mole people have really done a number on them in the past. They've messed up their crops and ridiculed them in public. And now they're fighting. And where is the McGuire in all of this? Nowhere. It's just a building with issues to be resolved later. Until then, we get to stare at that ugly-ass scaffold.

This morning the scaffolding made the sound of pebbles falling inside of a pipe, but lots of pebbles and lots of pipe, or falling from a great distance.

I'd be so pissed if I lived in this building.

The only cool thing about the scaffold is that when the wind blows - I mean really blows - it sounds like several dozen angry banshees when it hits the McGuire.
