captain : is the weather going to effect the curring
 
I am ready to lay my oven floor and start the dome will the cold weather have any effect on the way it will cure, depending on the good days it may take a few months to finish it or should I consider holding off for the spring. What a bummer I realy wanted to fire it up for christmas.

yes cold weather can affect both cure times and final strength. Check out the FAQ on Core of Engineers page

or the Portland Cement Organization
