Ho-ho test


I have used the term “ho-ho test” for as long as I can remember doing nuclear work. It was one of those terms that was passed down from Sea-Dad to Sea-Pup and no one knows its origins.

Hooray! I’ve been watching this beautiful holy house rise for the past 3 years and I’m so excited to get to go inside! I have my reservation for the second week of May. :) Before a temple is dedicated there is always an open house with free tours offered to the public for about 4-5 weeks. Thousands of people are expected to attend these tours, and an army of amazing volunteers will perform a beautiful streamlined process of bringing all those people through. Here’s a recent photo I took of the Payson Temple (Note: That’s my poor photo skills leaning, not the building!) I particularly love all of the curved edges, and the spire design on this temple.
