when you started writing about the CSFP & the UC I was thinking - "what the hell is this guy on about", now I'm wondering why no-one else (Media/Govt/etc) has picked up on all things you have. Amongst others it was the Quad exhaust stack that swung it for me, there's plenty more going on than is being told.

THIS link seems to answer my thoughts about the heat, and also answers the question about why are we seeing work being done overnight.
"Assignments were sometimes canceled (because of heat) even after I changed to protective gear and was ready to work," said a 59-year-old employee from Sendai, who wakes up at 4 a.m. every morning. "It doesn't really help us make progress. If you want to stick to the operation timetable, outdoor work should be done during the night."

Where is this water going?
In the matter of only 4 days, where did the previously-injected water go?

In video frames from about 45 seconds after the unit 3 blast, it can be seen that a part of the white surface-near cloud that initially had stretched out to the N/W of unit 3, had by then drifted with the wind to cover part of the unit 3+4 exhaust stack. This observation strongly indicates that the origin of the white cloud is closely the area about 200 meter to the west of unit 3 which we see covered with gray debris after the blast.
I see it as an explosion alright, but I am not sure I can see what is its nature. Being a vertical blast could easily mean that the blast site is underground, so to speak, and so out of view. It really looks to me very much like an explosive volcanic eruption and indeed it measures in the same range as such eruptions as regards the initial and later vertical velocities of the plume.
TEPCO acts as typhoon heads for Fukushima 04:46 AM Jul 19, 2011 TOKYO - Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) is rushing to install a cover over a building at its crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant to shield it from wind and rain as Typhoon Ma-on approaches Japan. Work on the cover for the turbine building of the No 3 reactor started yesterday, said TEPCO general manager Junichi Matsumoto. The transfer of tainted water for storage in a barge docked next to the plant was halted, spokesman Satoshi Watanabe said. The eye of Ma-on, categorised as "extremely strong," was about 1,200km from the Fukushima plant, according to the website of the Japan Meteorological Agency, which issued warnings for floods and high waves along the southern coast from Okinawa to Tokyo. The storm was heading north and may cross Kyushu early today. The United States Navy Joint Typhoon Warning Center said the storm may pass over the Fukushima plant by Thursday. TEPCO is on schedule to contain radioactive emissions from the Fukushima plant, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said last week during a visit to the area. Bloomberg
Tokyo Governor Shintaro Ishihara criticized Prime Minister Naoto Kan’s vow to reduce dependency on atomic energy after the Fukushima disaster, saying instead the country should deepen its nuclear embrace to include weapons.
“Japan should absolutely possess nuclear weapons,” Ishihara said in a July 15 interview at his office in Tokyo, citing China and North Korea as potential threats. “I don’t think we can easily do away with atomic power. Nuclear energy is inexpensive if managed well,” he also said.
