Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all!

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Matthew 2:1-2  Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Jud├Ža in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Wise men still seek him.

Week 74

There was some activity at the temple block on Friday, but not as much as usual.  I guess that's because of Christmas, or maybe all the work is occurring inside the temple.

I did catch a few hardy construction workers installing the ceiling to the East entrance in the cold, but sunny weather.

Still lots of pavers to be placed

All of the soil on the South side of the temple is pretty much in place.  I can't wait to see what the landscaping looks like in the Spring!

Much of the West entrance is complete and the workers have removed  most of the construction leftovers.

Week 73

I took these pictures today.  It was a cold, cold day and completely overcast.  It felt like the inversions we have in Northern Utah in January and February.  These are the kind of days that make me grateful I have an office job.

Of course, now that the temple is fully enclosed, the workers can proceed without the vicissitudes of the weather holding them up. The new year will bring the completion, open house, and the dedication of this great temple.  I can't wait.  How about you?

Week 72

Here are some construction photos from a week and a half ago.   
Roof mounted crane to allow the caulking between the pre-cast concrete panels to be completed
The unfinished caulking job between panels is visible as a dark line under the crane

I think the West entrance will be very attractive.
