Thaw Day #2

The snow has slowly been melting this weekend. It's made some of the long driveway icy-slick, but other areas have already become muddy brown; a saturated mess that augurs poorly for the near future.

New mailbox

I got a new mailbox on Thursday of this last week!

New mailbox

Hopefully, it will be sunk into the ground once the ground thaws.

Testing the static water levels in the wells

PALL techs are out here today to check on the static water levels of the wells on the property. With all the snow on the ground, they have to dig around a little bit to find the wells. (Their metal detector doesn't seem to be working very well.)

Mailbox destroyed

One of the costs of living where I do is the possibility of a vehicle knocking down my mailbox. It hasn't happened for several years (according to the records), however, the chance remains. Well, at some point during the snows of the past week, it happened: a vehicle knocked down the post and mailbox. I was able to recover the semi-flattened mail box itself, but the post upon which it sat and possibly some mail that was in the box, lie under the packed snow of the ditch.


I'll have to go to the post office to report this and ask them to hold my mail until it is fixed.

New Saginaw Forest-dedicated web presence

There is now webspace for Saginaw Forest links and history on the SNRE webpage! It will be updated by the SNRE communication coordinator over time, and (for the time being at least) maintain a link with this blog.
