Lama Dome Dailies, Dec 9: Update

In our continuing series on and from the Lama Dome...  From Nicole Davis:

JohnEO and Ehrin put 2 new courses on today. The second course they ran was a single shot. That means they got all the way around the hole with a single bag for the first time in Lama Dome history. The hole is now only FIVE FEET ACROSS! We are down to medium bag, which goes a lot quicker than big bag. Maybe only ONE MORE DAY of bagging left, and then we all turn to cob.

In other news, the rock crew did a beautiful job on the wainscoat by the front entrance. Cob workers valiantly smeared wet cob with frozen fingers on to the dome, then warmed their fingers by the wood-burning stove installed recently inside the dome. We like the hot tea and hot chocolate brewed up inside what is quickly becoming a cozy room. All four windows are now in, the front door is on, and the back door is next. Stay tuned!

Approximately $1300 of the needed $10,000 has come in for dome expenses. Much of this is for interior work.  Please donate to the project.
