7AM - Datastorm working fine.
Mr. Datastorm is online this morning. Yesterday I told you about the hole drilled in Mr. Datastorm's feedhorn lens in order to evaporate the moisture inside. This worked great, and there is no moisture inside the feedhorn now.

8AM - Painting MsTioga.
Today for sure, is the BIG painting day for MsTioga. It is a bright and sunshiny day with no wind. Jose arrived at his shop a little after 7AM, and is waiting for Gaspar the painter to come to work. Gaspar should be here a little after 8AM. Gaspar walks his daughter to school before coming to paint MsTioga.

8:30AM - Painting the base coat.
Gaspar the painter calls it "the base coat." We have waited soooooooo long for this base coat!
Filling the spray gun.

First of three coats.

12 Noon - Painting front and back.
The wind came, and then calmed down. There was some talk about finishing tomorrow! However, Gaspar continued when the wind calmed down again.

3PM - MsTioga, first look!
Just as we were taking off the masking, Little Mavicito took this "first look" pic of MsTioga.
