Finally got around to adding the perlite concrete to the dome. Slowly but surely...

Preparing for a Cat 3 hurricane. Hopefully the tarp and tie downs hold. The perlicrete only covers half of the dome so far, so I can't afford for the blanket to get soaked, or worse, blown away.

Everyone's alive and well...was damn scary though. Still no running water, phone, or electricity at the house though. The oven weathered the storm quite well....the house wasn't so lucky....

What kind of tree is that? Perhaps you have some pizza fuel!

Hey, just trying to be optimistic. Seriously, though, we are glad everyone's OK. These storms are getting to be scary!

Unfortunately its a good for nothing pine. One good thing about the storm was that I now have plenty of kindling from the fallen dead branches. Also there are hundreds of people giving away oak from fallen trees. Will be great for next yr. Plan to fire up the oven tomorrow for pizza, bread, and roasts. I may not have power but i can still cook!

That's another really cool thing about these ovens. Power failure is still difficult, but it doesn't hit you half as hard as it would without an oven!

Good to hear you're all ok!
