Dusting of Snow & Clear Skies

It snowed most of yesterday and occasionally the squalls were quite impressive. Somehow it really didn't add up to much as accumulation, though a dusting is present, especially where it fell on the remaining snowpack.

Today will be a beautiful day to be outside, with it getting to 38 degrees, a light wind, and sun. Please enjoy the beautiful Sunday!

Hiking Conditions: It is pretty, but it hides what is underneath, and on ice it can serve as a slippery addition, so please be careful with the footing out there.

Ted's AT Trek continues, with Ted having to manage 20 degree temperatures overnight deep down south, and a couple of progress section maps of the AT are posted at: tedatgwlt.blogspot.com

Cascades Breaking Through!

The Cascades began to break through last night!
There is strong flow, the water is crashing, and we expect more ice to break free today.

Be careful hiking today. The ice is thinning and the snowpack is giving way. We had two folks have trouble in the forest yesterday with the ice or snowpack giving way on them, and while everyone is fine, it would be wise to view your footing with a skeptical eye due to melting.

Ted also reported in from the AT yesterday! tedatgwlt.blogspot.com

More Mud! - Rain - Warmth - Melting

It is lightly raining, but he biggest drops are coming off of the branches of the trees that have built up and built up.
The trail is a mix of patches of hard ice, remnants of crushable snow, and bare patches of deep mud.

Last night we had a rivulet setting up in the center of the cart path from the Lodge to the parking area. A little work with a steel garden rake, and a trenching shovel to remove the leaves and debris and the water was running back into the woods and off the cart path. It would really be great if we could get through spring flooding season without needing to have earth moving equipment to keep the cart path open!

I had been wondering about the frost in the ground, but not having a backhoe, or recently having tried to dig a posthole I had no idea. It turns out that the folks to ask are the Worcester DPW! In places with snow cover, like Hope Cemetery, the frost line is about 3' deep. In the City streets that don't have the benefit of a snow blanket to protect them from the cold, the frost line goes much deeper. Also, an interesting engineering tidbit! Part of why we get such mud is that while the top layer may unfreeze, the frost is still below, and the water can't percolate down through the ground and out of the way. Thanks DPW guys!

MUD : Today Rain, Yesterday Logging, Warm

Yesterday saw a cold start warm into a warm day, and that was nice for walking and being outside, but proved complicated for the logging operation at Sibley Farm in Spencer.
The tracked Feller Buncher was doing fine up in the snowy fields, but as soon as the Skidder (shown in green with a yellow grapple above on the left) tried moving trees down to the landing it just opened up a channel of mud. The operators wisely decided to continue to cut and bundle the trees and not to skid them down to the landing area. We will wait for better conditions to do that.

The Feller Buncher was making its way around the perimeter of the fields and cutting the trees growing on the meadow side of the stone wall to reopen to the old original footprint. Here is a shot of the harvested trees lined up ready to be skidded away.
The Feller Buncher has a vertically mounted combination of grapples and what amounts to a circular saw blade on the bottom, so that as the arm extends to the tree the tree is cut, secured, and then can be moved into place. Here is a quick video of how that works:

NOTE: A local saw the farm gate open, equipment around, wanted to talk about the operation, and drove his truck right in... over a hidden embankment under the snow, and into a deep drift. I think it would be smart to emphasize that parking in the parking area is the way to go, and that logging equipment can go places your 4x4 truck can't.

Clear, Cold, Hopefully With Some Melting

This morning is clear, and cold.
The increased day length is deeply appreciated.
As yet, the world is still coated in snow and ice, and the only buds I have seen swollen were on a red maple by the brook.
We are in the tail end of a prolonged winter.

Today is the day to get out there!
The forecast is for warmth and melting.
And you should enjoy today, as tonight rain is likely, and tomorrow it will rain.
There is even a weather advisory for tomorrow from the NWS:

THERE WILL BE PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL AS LOW PRESSURE PASSES
NORTH OF THE REGION THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT. THIS ALONG WITH
MILD TEMPERATURES WILL CAUSE SIGNIFICANT SNOW MELT ACROSS THE
REGION. THIS COMBINATION MAY CAUSE SOME AREA RIVER LEVELS TO

Banks of Ice & a Pick-Axe - Logging - Eagles - Ted - & Clear Skies!

First, there were two Bald eagles out on Holden Reservoir #2 yesterday evening. They were making a dinner of a deer out on the ice to the east of Reservoir Street in Holden, Ma. It is becoming more common to see Eagles, but it is still pretty thrilling. Thanks to Mr. Nelson who drove up to the Lodge to pass along the wildlife sighting!

Yesterday morning Glenda, Roger and Colin headed out to the Greenville Street access to Sibley Farm to extract the metal farm gate. Mind you, the snow plows pushed months of snow and ice into the gate and bent it like a banana in an arc. The gate itself was in the way of gaining access to the property. We had a full sized pick-axe, a steel farm shovel, a sledge hammer, and a snow shovel to chop and extract. We discovered that breaking up the snow mound was going to take hours, so we changed tactics and decided to cut a slot to pull the gate out. Why?



Today begins logging work at Sibley Farm.

Back three years ago when we were initially looking to preserve the
farm, we did a review of the property and its habitats and potential for wildlife. We realized at that time that the meadows on the Greenville end had great potential as a wildlife meadow. Trick was that the meadows hadn't been mowed in well more than 5 years. The field edges had been growing in, and the walls between the fields had become hedgerows. If we were going to do the wildlife meadows properly we would need to cut back at the field edges and take down the rows of trees between the fields. We also discovered that there was a 1 acre patch of field that had been let go long enough to become a wood lot.

Starting right away in year one we went for the mowing, and we have kept after it ever since!

But the logging proved more complex. We need cold temperatures to not tear up the field, and we need a logger willing to take on a fairly small job. Somehow the pieces just never lined up right with early springs or busy schedules thwarting the project. UNTIL NOW!

Let me introduce the Feller Buncher!



She arrived yesterday in the deep cold, and will begin work today on a cold day after a super cold night. We hope the cutting only takes a day or two and that we can get the cutting done right quick. Then we will have the logs pulled down to the flat area off of Greenville Street for loading onto trucks for firewood processing.

Mind you, this means that Sibley Farm is NOT ACCESSIBLE FROM THE GREENVILLE STREET ACCESS FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.


Last night Ted Reported in from North Carolina on the Appalachian Trail!
From Standing Indian Mountain!
tedatgwlt.blogspot.com

For trailwork last night, since the ice chopping tool kit was already put together, Henry and Colin headed over to Southwick Brook on Marshall Street in Leicester. Over the course of a fairly intense hour we were able to chop apart and remove the ice and snow bank that blocked pulling in in front of the farm gate to access the property.

It is funny, you'd think, hey, why not just wait for it to melt?
No chance!
This wall of ice that required the pick-axe was not going away in a mere warm day or for any normal rain storm. This sucker was going to linger deep into the spring without outside assistance.
And now, it is gone!

Wicked Cold Monday Morning, Busy Weekend: Films, Conf, & Ted

What a weekend!

Saturday morning snow squall may have left little to no evidence, but it sure was a visual treat up on the hills! And then the afternoon broke into a glorious sunshine and warmth where I hiked one way in a heavy down parka, and back in short sleeved shirt and fleece vest!

Saturday was also another chance for Worcester to host the Mass Land Conservation Conference at the Worcester Technical High School on the East Side Trail. GWLT had 11 folks present by one count! Land Trusts from all over the state gathered here in Worcester to discuss issues and techniques in land conservation. We also dragged a crew out onto the East Side Trail for a hike!

Sunday was the Clark University Earth Week "Wild & Scenic" Film Festival. After a winter of ever increasing cabin fever, it was incredibly inspiring to see green landscapes, wildlife, and panoramas of what is to come! Thanks to the Clark Outing Club for working together with GWLT to make this festival available to folks here in Worcester. It was incredible.

& Ted!

Clear Skies, Cold, & Open Water : FREE Wild & Scenic Film Festival!

It looks beautiful out there, and it may be, but it is also painfully cold this morning.
The snow pack continues its slow dissipation without any catastrophic meltoff, which is good for avoiding flooding, but it provides a mixed bag of conditions for walking. Gaiters aren't a bad idea for "punching through" where the snowpack no longer bears weight.

View looking West up the Cascades Brook form the Olean St. Bridge

This Sunday Clark University is having a FREE "Wild and Scenic Film Festival" and if you can, you really should check it out!

They are screening the films on Sunday March 22, at Sackler 121, 3-6 pm.The total movie duration is about 1.5 hours. They'll have short introductions and an intermission where GWLT will have a table as a sponsor. The screening is free and open to the public.

Hints of Spring Accelerating: Ted at Preaching Rock, GA

The warmth and rains are accelerating the sings of spring. Tops of stone walls are now reappearing. Paths creep open wider where thy had been shoveled. Seedling trees last sen months ago are slowly poking through the snow cover reemerging from their snowy depths. The depth of the snow pack is greatly reduced, but still deep enough to let you "punch through" and have snow above your ankles to creep down into your open boot tops.

Things are getting more spring like, but it is still a mixed and laborious hike for any length without snow shoes.

GWLT's Ted is now as far as Preaching Rock in Georgia, some 24.3 miles in.

Chilly but warming

We're working on springtime here! We lost quite a bit of snowpack over the weekend.
At 7:30, it is 24.8 degrees and rising.
The humidity is 56% and steady
The barometer is 29.74 inches of Hg and steady under clear skies.
Both stream channels are open and running through banks of snow.

I was asked over the weekend if the Cascades were running yet. While there is water running under the ice and snow, the hill is still encased. There hasn't been enough sustained warmth on the east-facing hill for that to melt away and for the falls to open up. We'll let you know when they do!

Also, if you're outside in the early morning, you'll hear a lot more bird activity now than a few weeks ago. The chickadees and cardinals are singing, and I just heard a woodpecker hammering away on a dead tree.

NWS forecast for today: 
Mostly sunny, with a high near 46. West wind around 7 mph.

Black Ice Into Rain & Springer Mountain

Well, today starts with black ice, transitions into rain and warmth, and we should see accelerating melt of the snow pack. This will make for a pretty messy mix out there. Be prepared for pretty much every trail surface condition imaginable, other than dry!

The sanding trucks are whipping by on Olean Street so take that into consideration.

Today GWLT's Ted starts his hike on the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain. He spent last night at a hiker hostel on Mount Dahlonega. We expect a report in from him and will be posting his progress over the coming days, weeks and months at tedatgwlt.blogspot.com The GWLT logo will begin the slow march north thanks to Ted.

Cold & Sun, Melting Will Continue

A very cold clear morning with a bright sun on the horizon and a half moon in the sky.

Six deer are out on Cook's Pond, who slipped between the main island and a smaller island, and out of sight. Likely there are more out of sight.
A woodpecker's morning breakfast is echoing out over the frozen ice.
 
Hiking Conditions: Once again, yesterday's melts will have frozen solid overnight. Watch for patchy ice, crusty snow surfaces, patches of mud, and deep pockets of snow, making hiking an adventurous mix over different terrains.

Today Ted arrives in Georgia, and gets picked up by the Hiker Hostel in Dahlonega, where he is staying over tonight. Ted on the AT update here: tedatgwlt.blogspot.com
