Getting a new Moroni

The statue of the angel Moroni atop the Denver temple was replaced on July 5th. It had been hit one too many times by lightning. The beauty of the temple is marred by a singed and scorched Moroni I suppose. Anyway, we thought it would be a neat experience to go and see this feat of engineering take place so we went and watched the old Moroni come down. It was neat to see how it all worked. They unscrewed the bolts at the base of the statue first. There was a loop they screwed into his head and then they looped a rope-thing through it and pulled him out! There was a long cable attached to the statue (a ground wire or something) that they unattached and then down he went!
