4 Aug., 2012 -- Rain! Somebody did the rain dance!

Inch and a half tonight, downpour and wind, 36 mph. But hey, it's RAIN!
It was 99 degrees today. Relief!

3 Aug., 2012 -- Ok, so here's how it works

The gobbler lowers the tail end, digs in, starts to churn and crawl forward,
then spits it all out into a dump truck. Mtn. Grove Airport is officially chewed up.
The asphalt will be recycled when the runway is ready to be paved.
Next week the crews start digging up the base.

Not enough for a truckload

Closing up shop for the weekend.

Found this perfect feather in the driveway.
We should all have such perfect feathers for flying. OSH was perfect, too.
