We’re experiencing a rare event in San Diego — consecutive cloudy, rainy days. To combat this momentary bout of ennui due to weather and winter break, here are some photos of the union in sunnier days (see: just last week).
While the occasional rainstorm is not unheard of — San Diego receives an average of 12 inches of rain per year — it is not seen with any kind of regularity and often reduces local newscasts to hyperbole-driven “storm watches.”
Of course, when it rains, it also means that construction comes to a halt at Aztec Student Union since the building is without walls.
But, that skeletal structure will not last long as the crew is beginning to erect scaffolding along the building. Starting at the northeast corner near Student Services, scaffolding will go up clockwise around the building.
As scaffolding is erected, teams will put in the smaller “bones” of the structure, upon which walls will eventually appear.
Want to keep your eyes on Aztec Student Union during the break (construction will continue despite the campus closures)? Be sure to “like” it on Facebook, follow it on Twitter or watch the live construction camera on the website.
