Post webcam observations for December here.  Observations should start with a date and ‘jst’ time (Japan Standard Time) and camera(s).  Describe as best as possible what you see.  Contribute data such as weather conditions, work activities, TEPCO or local news reports, radiation readings, earthquake activity, or any information that documents events occurring at Daiichi.  Comments and analysis welcome.  Help keep an eye on TEPCO's disaster site.

12-01  An unusual object hoisted by the crane on cam1 at 4:00 pm.  Two shots of it rising and two when it came down.  It wasn't visible on cam4 that I could see.  Tepco might be testing a possible solution for the stuck cutter.

According to macrocarpa, the vent stack cut has been completed.
Unclear if cut piece has been lowered.
Says next task is to get the cutting tool removed.
And they *did* send up a Japanese 'danger kitty' to get the job accomplished.

I saw the cube hoisted up and moved next to the cutter yesterday. It was there for several hours. The cube went back down but the cutter is still sitting on the vent tower. I'll try to get some pics posted later today. If they finished the cut, I wonder what's stopping them from hoisting the cutter and the pipe section down? The Japanese danger kitty deserves a pay raise for going up there and making the cut.

Tweet just said the cut was completed. Getting the cut section and the cutter down may be a major operation.
Not an enviable task...

Dec.3,6pm, #Tepco's subcontractor successfully completes cutting the rest of 1.1 m  of north side of the main pipe of #Fukushima vent stack.
To cut another 20 cm of SE side to set the equip free.

Red arrow above is the spotter,below the cutter,at 110m-high?
Tons of thanks!
