View of the Dead Sea from Ein Gedi before the rain. Can you spot the drill rig?

As of 16:00 today, we are at 354 m down in Hole H. Last night they finished drilling without coring to about 40 meters beneath the lake floor to get past the problematic layer. Cores started to come out again, which is good news. The weather is overcast and cloudy. Rain has been falling on and off all day, and it is very dramatic (see picture of the day) but the lake has been calm. Wishing you all a Happy New Year and a great 2011.
