They are not extremely heavy but most of them are a bit much for three guys to handle efficiently... a crane makes the process much easier.

Feels like winter is setting in now with the change in the clocks... darkness starts setting in about 4:30... Today was another exceptionally nice day, high in the mid 40s, but we all know what is coming...
