Lama Dome Dailies, Dec 18

From the shining mind of Elisha Knapp:

Today began with a light dusting of snow. Tempatures were still freezing by the time we clibmed the mountian and the wind was blowing. Mid day the sun descided to grace us with its glory.

Today was our Canadian contingent's last day on the mountiain (John, Roger and Christine). Its difficult to go and to see people go, but we must pass on what we have gained through this holy effort. It has changed each of us in deep profound ways that may not be readily aparent. Including all of those who have given support for the project through their thoughts, wishes, and donations.

With the inspection deadline growing steadily nearer, energy amounts. Today we got a significant amount of cobing done. Tomorrow we will have the entire dome covered and will work on filling out the shape. With three more days...the Dome, and our hearts, become ever more beautiful.
