Thanks to you few souls who have followed my blog for the past while! Because of a similar blog (www.brighamcityldstemple.blogspot.com), it seems silly for me to continue. His pictures are pretty awesome, don't you think? Anyway, I'll follow his, and if he ever falters in the next 15 months, I'll pick it up again. Thanks, again, for letting me share this wonderful activity in our neighborhood!

Can you believe 1/4 of the year is just about over? Because of the snow we had today,
it's hard to believe Spring is just around the corner!
Be sure to click on any of the pictures for more detal.
The above two pictures are looking at the north side of the temple.
The Paul Bunyon rebar is the same at the back as the front.
This is the south side of the temple. It was pretty cool
watching the cranes place the metal what-ever-they-are's on the top floor.
The four pictures above were taken from
my usual spot on the south side of the temple.
Looking east above.
Above shot taken from the NE. They opened a different
part of the fence on 2nd North for truck access.
All four above shots taken from the West looking East.
Can you see the tabernacle in the middle of the picture
through the snow & trees?
Be sure to visit brighamcityldstemple.blogspot.com
for more really awesome pictures!

The Ogden Temple will be closing the very first of April to be recreated.
Hopefully ours will be done before long (wishful thinking) to take up some of the slack.
I can dream, can't I? I'm mentally ready for them to lay sod and plant flowers already!
The picture above was taken from the south side of the temple lot. The metal structure
is at the front entrance. I'm trying to envision what it will look like when it's complete.
The two pictures above were taken from my regular spot on the south side.
The above photo was taken from the NW corner of the temple lot.
The three shots above were taken from the construction entrance
...Glad I didn't get caught!
This is another shot taken from the tabernacle lawn. It's the reinforcement
metal at the front door of the temple (like I really know!).

First I'm excited that the snow is disappearing...can spring be far off?
Second, I'm excited that so much progress is taking place at the temple site!

I just discovered another temple update blog. Go to brighamcityldstemple.blogspot.com. He (Brian Rex) has some arial pictures that are really cool. It's fun to compare the tabernacle footprint and the temple footprint as well as the placements on their lots from the air! His blog looks so good that I might just turn it all over to him. Anyway, I forgot to get a picture last weekend, so I'll post one next week.

It looks like the NE corner of the temple has caught up with the others.
The picture below was taken from the SW corner.
There's the tabernacle (below) still patiently keeping watch!
Below is the action taking place on the N side of the building.
Lots going on there! The construction fence has been bumped out
one lane into 200 S so there's only one eastbound lane.
