The plow was set to an inch above the road, so it did hit the high spots on the dirt road a couple of times.
The temperature is forecast to be a high of 24 degrees for Olathe today.

Anyone tried getting into the field this last week/weekend?  Don't want to fight mud if it has come to that.

Just came back from the flying field and here's the skinny:  The main access road just off the county road is still pretty wet, and could be an issue in a 2 wheel drive:(. The main access road has been torn up a good bit by the play in the mud folks, and you will need a vehicle with a good bit of clearance to get to our gate. We have a wet spot on our road that is still a bit too wet to drive over without tearing up the road. I walked in to the runways, and they are still too wet to use. But, they should be pretty much usable in a couple more days with weather like we're been having. Unfortunately, I think the road will take longer to dry out than the runways. My guess is that it'll be ready by mid-week at the earliest.  

Much to my surprise, we had a little runoff erosion on the main runway near the intersection with the cross runway. From the look of things, a good bit of water and sediment came through the culvert under the main runway. Wouldn't have expected that from snow melt out there. The little pot guts are busy digging. Hopefully our runway won't look too tempting.

There is a good chance that I can get out to the field mid week and get some work done on the road and maby relocate some hole diggers :lol:

As I will spend most of my time in the truck and the rest on a site bench it should not have adverse effect on my nee but thanks for the offer

Thank you Cliff. You are very much appreciated. I know that Randy is headed that way this morning, and have had several inquiries about the road condition from folks who apparently don't check the website. Go figure.
