yesterday was 57 but warmer in the sun. Worked outside cutting up sheet rock out the back of my van for my slabs. Much easier to move smaller pieces around.

the electrician came today and installed the meter for new service to the kiln shed 200 amp meter. Plus a panel box inside. My big oval will be direct wired to the panel and plugs for the 2 smaller kilns. The energy company is next to approve the wiring, then the electrician comes back for the wiring to the kilns. Signed up for a wood firing at the Red Lodge clay center in April. I can bisque soon.

got the last pegboard up. Mounted my extruder. Dropped off boxes, plastic and metal at recycling. had some water leak into the kiln shed floor. Snow mounds are still melting a lot. I think I will solve that problems as soon as it warms up.

got my last heater installed. My studio feels great. No noise, drafts, just warm air. Clay won't freeze unless I lose power. And I have a kerosene heater to back it up.

    Gratz! I am loving that winter is almost over here. Can't wait to pot in the spring. Cool nights and warm days.

    Yellowstone in Winter with so few people around is indescribable. I remember seeing 2 elk standing in the run off of a hot pool. They were covered with icicles and shrouded in steam coming off the hot water....so beatiful..

I mixed clay today! Picked up dry clays about 11, did errands, and started mixing about 1 pm while the sun was warm . Cold front is coming in tonight. Beat it! So happy. Mixed about 270 pounds wet. That should be a good start. This batch is for making new saggers. I didn't bring many with me. My birthday is Wed. so I can celebrate by doing some throwing. Kilns will be getting wired in Mid- February.

Love being in Montana. Day break is beautiful when the sun first hits the tops of the mountains. Picking up dry clay today in town (how lucky to be near a supplier) then wet clay on Friday at Archie Bray in Helena. Getting closer to operating.

    I am picking enough up for a batch of raku from the red Lodge Clay Center. However, it seems to be 25% higher than the Bray prices. And they don't publish their prices. They said they don't publish them because they are so low. Not the case.

    At least your keeping on track. I caught my husbands head cold and it turned into a ear infection. All I do is sleep.

perils of moving into a used house. It took 3 city water dept. guys 2 hours to find the turn off valve for the water system as a pipe was leaking from being frozen. They found the meter and the turn off valve behind a built in structure in the basement. So much for working on organizing the studio. Plumber comes tomorrow. One guy was the former mayor.

    enjoying solving problems of arranging chemicals today. Removed a shelf under a counter and can store all the large chemical bins that are here and not in Tx.
