Donald Trump has a permit for this morning to hoist the spire pieces to the top of his Trump International Hotel and Tower . But with fierce winds and heavy rain, it looks like it's just not going to happen. Again.
This is just the latest in a series of tries for The Donald. A couple of weekends ago a sky crane actually flew with a piece of the spire attached to a cable:

Today's permit expires at noon, and the weather is only expected to get worse by then.
He has a permit for tomorrow, Sunday December 28th, 2008, as well. We'll see if mother nature is any kinder to him.
