GROOMER UPDATE: Must be our luck or something. The case Allegan so generously loaned us has
gone down twice already. The first time it was parked between Shingleton and the Bear Trap over night
because a hydraulic line blew. Yesterday afternoon the week bearing went out on the drag. All was fixed
promptly and we are oh so grateful for the extra piece of equipment.
Conditions: The warm weather for the last few days has made the snow wet and very soft. There are
some waters spots and dirty corners close to town. The Case and Tucker are headed out today to tandem
groom 431 to get it in shape before the cold weather sets it tonight. Tomorrow they plan to do the same thing
to 43 and 8. Tomorrow afternoon a new storm with forecasted lake effect is coming. Heres hoping the
equipment holds out and the lake effect drop lots of snow!
Warm Weather Grooming:
Typically they don't groom much above 37 but there are a lot of variables:
How much sun. This makes the snow wetter and softer
How much wind. Also makes the snow wetter
Is there rain involved
How much sled traffic
Is the temp still dropping below freezing at night. If so they can groom at night.
This is the short version but the trail boss makes the call. And if the operator calls and says the snow is balling
up in the drag then he will be directed to return to the barn as this will not produce a safe trail.

Trail 43/8 - the water hole that keeps rearing it ugly head is froze again. Don is leaving the stop ahead and stop
signs up for now. The water is high there because of the beaver dam and it undermines the trail without notice
so the signs stay up til we are sure it's okay.
The detour signs on 43 just outside of town were taken down this past weekend but i'm pretty sure they will go
back up soon with this weather.
Logging: Trail 43 south has logging going on for the last 2 miles off of ten curves road that will be going on all
