SnowOps, I wished !!!! That storm is way south of where we are! I am hoping that the Snowy Range and Laramie gets some snow soon. We only have about 5-6 inches of snow at 9,000 feet.

We got a storm that passed through the past few days that dumped 15-20 inches on us. Looking like we're actually gonna get snow this year unlike last season.

OK Bob what keeps those little tubs from flooding? and how long do those batteries last or are they solar? Is that a little data logger in there? What kind of vibration are you monitoring? or are you secretly monitoring for sasquatch
movements? you know you may find some Yetti tracks over the top of one of those someday. as it is being pulled by a Thoikol, Sorry Al just had to put a dig in.

Pretty much watertight, but things are rarely completely watertight so there's a bilge pump at the bottom (couple more feet down). This site has two 80W solar panels and two 100AH batteries. We normally run one panel and battery, but this site is in shade most of the time. It's a seismic datalogger with external hard drive. The part numbers for bith units are taken from an old John Deer tractor and it's baler. The designer is an antique tractor nut.

We tried to detect Yetti recently, but it was so light and fast that we missed it. We should have better luck with a slow and lumbering Thiokol as our equipment is more geared toward long-period earth-shaking events, but parts falling of Snot Tracs may also be easily detectable.

NW Indiana 6 inches, 4(F) degrees. We have a snow advisory for tonight so we have some hope for another 6" of snow if all works out well.

You must be close to my fishing hole. Dogtooth lake south and east of Kenora ? We try to get up there once or twice a summer.

(RUTH NV) 6" and still falling from Heaven! SLC was a disaster zone with all those damned rice burners crashing every mile or too. At first I thought I was at a Kristi snowcat convention but realized that there are not that many Kristis!
