Some students do Running Start and take college classes during high school, and some students do Running Finish, trying to cram all the work they should have completed a Long Time Ago in the last day of the semester. It was a running finish kinda day - all the way into early evening. After all the dust and Dektol had settled, though, there were a few small things.

Tree down over roadway

Riding to school at 6am to fire the last kilnloads of the semester, I encountered debris and two large trees blocking my path, brought down by stormy weather that was trying to turn me into a kite. Meh - business as usual. This tree I went around (where the pretty decorative tape is, put up after I went through (the first time)) and the other one I hoisted my bike over and clambered after it - no problems. The lights were flickering at school but held out, and the school neighbors shot off fireworks to celebrate when the kiln got to cone 10 - or maybe that was for the Seahawks winning? Crazy day.

Some cups and other projects from the last two cone 10 firings, as well as low fire and raku work.
