Upcoming operations

Drilling is going to commence (finally, since the snow and ice is now effectively melted) near to where it was done last August. This time, the well will be drilled using a different technique than before, thus (hopefully) speeding the process up a bit.

Also (at some point during the spring/summer), the boardwalk along the eastern property line of the forest will be built, and a path connecting the south and north sides of the eastern edge of Third Sister Lake will be complete. This will create three loop trails in the property (as well as any combination thereof).

Re-freeze day 3

After near-record high temperatures for St. Patrick's Day last week, this week's weather have been on the very low end of the temperature record, with highs barely reaching over freezing. Still, almost all of the snow melted over the previous week, and most of the melt-water has trickled through toward the lake, which became open waters about two days ago.

Today is Visit Day at the school, and the weather is likely not going to be playing to our favor today. But it's Michigan, folks: sometimes it's still freezing cold at the end of March.
