The official version of events suggests that this ferris wheel never turned; the grand opening was to be on Labour Day on May 1st, five days after “The Accident.”

The unofficial version, however, suggests the ferris wheel didn’t stop turning in the run up to evacuation; anxious residents waiting to be evacuated were encouraged to ride the ferris wheel in a futile attempt to distract themselves from the disaster that was unfolding on their doorstep.

    Love the composition.

    Really well done.
