How wet is it?

This past week I checked out CFDC dig sites to get a perspective on how wet the sites really were. Almost all of our sites are ready to go with little or not water. The shale is soaking up the water nicely. However the CFDC property, being lower in a valley still had some snow cover. We were unable to trek all the way to the bottom. I tried to pass through a ridge of snow in my rubber boots (being wet and all) and almost lost one of them the snow was so deep. Have no fear though it was only a small patch of snow and should be gone by the end of the week.

It was great to be out in the field once again. It's going to be a great season for collecting. I'll be heading out next week to finalize our field plans. I'll keep you posted.
