We had a smallish crew - augmented wonderfully by three sawyers and three helpers from Atrium Landscape, thank you Kathy Bruch! - thinning trees near the namesake slough. It was a cold start warming to 12 -14 F by afternoon. Our fires were reluctant so the leaf blower and propane tank were essential for the day's task.
Enough about the cold, I should emphasize what a truly beautiful day it was. Bright and sunny, a fresh dusting of snow, you can't go wrong with that combination...
Swallow Cliff Sunday January 27
Another small group, but, hey, it was still below zero when we started. We also had about three inches of fresh new snow, fluffy and light like confectioner's sugar. Cyndi had to open the parking lot when she arrived around 8:45.
Most impressed by Agustin who Ubered (that's a verb, isn't it?) his way to the site. Another reluctant fire which we finally were able to coax into providing heat, another increment of brush pushed back by lopper and bow saw.
