We weren't able to accomplish much this morning because our custom tools were not complete. It was a good thing we were able to be on site in order to get our block re-positioned, but we didn't get anything else done apart from dropping off equipment and leveling the dirt upon which the clock with be erected. So, it's back to Lars's shop at Belfair to finish our tools. We are allowed to work at Ice Art around the clock until 9:00 PM on Thursday, so we should still have plenty of time once the tools are done.
Steve wasn't kidding about the roads being like skating rinks. On top of the sheets of ice, Fairbanks received over a foot of fresh snow just before my arrival. It was the highest single snowfall in years.
