34 degrees this morning and cloudy. It did get below freezing last night and we got a heavy dusting of snow. I know the weather guessers are calling for rain down below the next couple days, but for UP here they are saying 3-6 inches of heavy wet snow…..we`ll see what happens. Here`s what went on yesterday on our trails…..
Groomer Jack ran the South trail #8. He called it fair to good. The swamp south of town had a soft spot open up but he got it filled in. I`ve said this before, slow down in there and watch for soft spots. Once he got back to the barn and fueled up he still felt ambitious so he ran the Falls trail too. Thats 14 hrs. total in the seat!!! He rated the Falls trail as good. I think he`s earning himself a new nick name…..iron butt. LOL
Groomer Gerald headed out for Pine Stump but the machine (new one) started acting up on him again so he turned around about an hour in. We called the company and they sent a tech down last night. He is out there right now working on it…….and so the saga continues.
Not sure whats up for today but stay tuned.

27 degrees this morning and sunny. No new snow last night. Here`s what went on yesterday……
The traffic on the trails was INSANE yesterday. Most everybody acted cool though which was good to see.
Groomers Mike and Dave M. split the Pine Stump run, Groomer Jack ran the Point trails and I hit the Falls trail. We all had the same to say, it looked good grooming but on the return trip it was gettin tore up again….lots of traffic! It was like grooming sugar, we could fill in the holes but after a dozen sleds went by it got all blown out. We all agreed to rate them as fair.
Today Groomer Gerald is runnin the Stump trail again and Groomer Jack is runnin south on trail #8.
Now, on to Groomer Chris` broke down grooming machine show…..
I`m cancelling it after today, was just having a little fun to alieviate the frustration but here`s one last run down.
We are waiting for the injector pump for the one machine. It should be here by the end of the week.
Our 2012 machine is runnin fine. We have run it around the clock the last couple days.
Our new machine is runnin good to. Mike had just one code pop up on him last night on the return trip from the Stump instead of 100. We`ll call the company Monday to see what they have to say but no big deal.
Thats it….hope you enjoyed the show!!!! And I hope I don`t have to bring it back as reruns…..LOL
