Day Thirty-Four

The same wind that damaged the pottery compound shade cloth yesterday afternoon also damaged the Grid 23/24 shade cloth.

The first time wind carried off the Grid 23/24 shade cloth, it was found at the top of the tel caught in some trees. This time it didn’t get that far and with a little help from Grid 33, it was back up in no time.

We have three more days of digging before the last final photos are taken and the team is hard at work making sure everything is finished on time.
