Tasks done today:
1) GreenHab: grow lights installed; shade cloth installed on south
wall; +/- 2 dozen pots planted and watered.
2) Toilet tank flushed out.
3) Tunnel between GreenHab and intersection to Science Lab removed and replaced.
4) Generator jump started, oil was topped off, and it is in working condition.
5) Electrical receptacles checked, and we found that the receptacles
in the toilet, shower room, and alcove in front are not working. Lack
of GFCI outlets in wet areas noted.
6) Replacement lid for vent/skylight fabricated.
7) Porthole in south airlock exterior door had fallen out due to
extreme wind conditions (and the fact that it was just sitting in the
opening and not fastened mechanically, just siliconed), but was
undamaged. So it was put back in with carabiners slotted through holes
on each side so that it won’t fall out again.

Tasks that need to be done:
A. Water heater is still not working. Per Curtis, it needs to be fully
replaced. Installation expected soon.
B. Need more water in spare tanks.
