    Played yesterday in the Champlain Valley on 10-14 inches of powder. Last night and today we lost all but 2-3 inches, will be all gone after an inch of 50 degree rain tomorrow. January thaw sucks.

    I walked into the shop to go over a couple things with Andy. Nobody home, not a soul at work. Where did he go. It is awfully nice afternoon since we left the ice age for a couple day.
    Well, hes 125 miles north in the Allagash. took me a while to track him down. And hes got the head wrenchturner with him. Oh well, I should follow him

    We all need Carbon Cubs and flights to Florida. Or better north to Canada or Minnesota with this current rain. 🤬
    Best advice I have Mr. Symon is to buy that CC now. A week with Mr. Crane will do you good. Or at least get you in trouble.

    Maybe you got to show more leg Glenn.


    Although, if you fly down there in the sport cub, you might end up having to leave it with yellowbird and riding back with Jim anyways.
    Sounds like a win-win already.

    Some days you’re the steam, and some days the steam rises without you.

    One day of sun and four hours of rain has reduced winter to but a shimmering puddle.
    51° and 8 more hours of rain to come.

    Rather pathetic views in the yard here in the Penobscot Valley. My backyard and field are largely a lake and my stream is overflowing. We went from a -27 day to 51 degrees in a very short period of time. The old-timers, of which my children now say I am a member of, called this the January thaw. And it is still raining hard.

    Glenn gets home faster than I do.

    A few extra photos to add to the days events.

    Stopped at North Creek first. Excellent untouched runway conditions.





    The super sweet cabin Glenn showed photos of had a couple nice touches to be shown.







    The Beaver River Gang






    T3’s apparently don’t need wheels now.



    Laying tracks in the Adirondacks.




    Homeward bound.

    Looks like you guys have some beauty snow. You cant believe the crap we have now. Its dried concrete after 2.5 in rain and now below zero. All the brooks and streams and swamps are at flood stage Its almost unlandable. My wife though I lost my mind when I came home trying to find a semi smooth patch to plunk down in the cornfield. Rock solid with patchy areas of crust to flip bushwheels, So you cant fly skis without tearing the gear off, and minefields for bushwheels. Looks like the snowgods take care of the just

    VTGlenn, seems NOAA goes out and photographs ice dam potential and existing during the winter as needed. Looks like decent snow at the Dairy Center in Enosburg, photos from 1/15.

    Went out last weekend to check out the ice jams and flew into lake carmi which is close to the dairy center. Had about 6-8” of fresh snow with no overflow. Since then we have gotten another 2 inches.

    Scouter, do you guys use of this type of data for the farm?

    Based on the photos, seems NOAA has a Twin Otter that they fly quite a bit in the northeast to predict soil moisture.

    I'm getting off topic in this thread, sorry Glenn.
    VTGlenn and Skywalker, we need to start watching out for low flying twin otters! Apparently 22A up to Shoreham is a designated photo route.

    Spent this afternoon in the Champlain Valley hopscotching from one lake to another along route 30 south. Not much snow but plenty of good ice.

    Walked on Dunmore last weekend, 14 inches in the south end, almost no snow. Bet those Twin Otters are flying alot higher than we tend to. Got my new rear window in yesterday. Just need to bleed my new double caliper brakes.
    What's a go-around?

    Perhaps breakfast up north tomorrow might be in order to overcome your sadness. I also understand that there might have been some ski testing also going on in the Petersburg area. Will have to wait on the results��
