Logentry Text:
Cooling of the magnet continues. 
Coils 1 and 2 are at 97K
Coils 3 and 4 are at 102K
Coil 5 is at 111K
 Coils 1 to 4 are still cooling, but slower than coil 5 which is expected at this point in the process.

The Z support load cells have slowed their rate of force increase as expected. the Downstream Beam Left Top load cell (which was highest) dropped from ~520 to ~340 yesterday at about 3pm.  At present there is no explanation for this. Maybe there was some compaction of materials in the support link adapters. Similar drops were seen the day before on DS BR T and US BR T load cells

Tuesday, before starting the 4K portion of the cooldown we will stop the flow and reconnect the UPS. In parallel with 4K cooling we need to understand and repair the noise that is being generated by the lead flow heaters.
