Sawyer County Snow-day
It has been a snowy week in Northern and Central Wisconsin this week and last.
Luckily it has also been extremely cold so hopefully the ground and ice are both freezing down despite the think blanket of white insulation.
We do rely on that frozen ground and frozen water during the winter months to get most of our work done where roads are sparse and water is plentiful.
Today Nick planned to head north from our Cadott office an hour before daylight, check on a timber sale in Chippewa County at 7, and then proceed up to Sawyer County to do some Boundary Surveying on property near Ojibwa.
He made it as far as the timber sale and after struggling far longer than expected to accomplish this mission he called me to let me know that the surveying would have to wait for another day since the snow on the main roads was up to the axles on his 4x4 truck, and it was coming down so fast that visibility was nearly non existent.
Probably a good decision since precise GPS readings would be required for part of the surveying project and satellites and gps units must be able to see each other for accurate readings to take place.
So I suggested that today would be a good day to get some good photos along the way back to the Cadott office, which I hope he did.
Have a great week and enjoy the snow; it looks like it will be a good year for it.
