We have a temple president!

Yesterday, it was announced that the First Presidency has called a temple president and matron for the Brigham City Temple.  

Preston James Checketts and his wife, Louise Backman Checketts from Bear River City will be the temple president and matron.  Congratulations to them!

Week 96

Another week has come and gone.  The weather got cold and rainy again, but I was able to take these photos before the cold front came through.

More fiddling with the caulking around the windows.  Someday, I would like to know the story about the windows - why there seemed to be so much work with the flashing, etc.
 I think the fountain with will look spectacular and I can't wait to see it up close when it is completed.
 The West fountain will not be as fancy as the one in front of the East entrance, but it will still be elegant.
 What is the big crane for?
 Most of the new sidewalk on Main Street has been poured.  I suppose the landscaping in the parking strip will be next.

 The water is running in the tabernacle ditch, but no other work is being done on the landscaping on the tabernacle side.

 The North parking lot is essentially complete - just need the curb, gutter and sidewalk finished on the East half of the block.



Night Photos of the Temple

The exterior lighting of the temple was recently turned on, so I had to get some photos of the splendor.  I don't think all of the floodlights were operational, but even so, the effect was dramatic.  I haven't seen the temple lights from a distance, but I bet you can seen the them from Corrine or even further west.  Maybe the temple lights are the first thing you see when coming down the canyon from Mantua?

The moon even cooperated for some great shots!
