A well-ordered flock of Canada geese overflew the place ~5:00. Snow melting, temp. ~40º. 2 hours repairing the fence. The north fence is still a mess thanks to the loggers of the April Forest. Rewired the N.E. corner ... the corner post down due to treefall, probably 2-4 years ago.
XXXXXX called regarding local citizens effort (letter writing + petition drive) Re: Gelman's deep injection well.
1 hour of touch-up painting inside the cabin.

Escorted 2 men off ice due to icefishing. Both mid 30's, white ... left via Gelman side fo lake thru broken segment of fence.
They claimed that a University Professor game them the O.K. to be out here! (Whose name I never heard and have promptly forgotten.)
While booting them out, I noticed 4 minnow traps in placein the lake ice! The fishermen came along as I pulled them out. They were amid holes ~ bushel basket size, evidently cut sometime yesterday... 1/2 of ice had formed over the holes. After yanking the last one out, I noted a label...
"Peter Yost, U.Mich. Museum Zoology" I reported to Paul Kamprath... Lets wait + see!

(RRB) => Found two men icefishing on the lake
(mid 30's, #1 white, bearded, #2 black, no beard)
They left via East end of Lake and went to their hechicle parked in the Gelman lot.
[Black/dark Green Chev. Pickup ...]
I herded them up there at a distance and entered Gelmen to report this incident to security.

R.Boyle: Arrived here from Christmas Break circa midnight, missed the turn to the entrance by missing the mailbox as a marker.
In morning, discovered that the county snowplows neatly removed both the mailbox and the Ann Arbor News box.
