Default Pizza oven problem?

Hi all. Not to sure where to post this, but need advice.

I built an oven last year and have a vermiculate base(2 inches) and a dome on top with two layers of vermiculate blanket and covered with vermiculate/cement mix. Last year it heated very well and made great pizza.
We have had a very wet winter, and the dome appears damp this year.

Upon firing it does not get anywhere near enough hot anymore. From 400degrees celcius last year, to 100 Celsius this year.

The floor appears to not be heating anymore. There is a firebrick 4 piece floor, covered by a 4 piece dome. I have fired it a few times to try and dry it out.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Geoff.
