Against the foggy backdrop Joe Alonso, (L) head stone mason and Andy Uhl, stone carver, at the Washington National Cathedral, oversee the removal of damaged upper portions of the southeast grand pinnacle, weighing two tons, from the central tower of Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, October 13, 2011. The Cathedral's central tower pinnacles were damaged by the magnitude 5.8 earthquake that struck the East Coast on August 23. The damaged portions of pinnacles are being removed to make the pinnacles and central tower stable until the stonework can be repaired and put back in place.  .Credit: Nikki Kahn / Pool via CNP
