My groundwater study has been going slowly as of late due to waiting for cooler weather, an equipment malfunction, and my taking almost a month off over the past few months. I decided it was time to get my tail back out into the field. Yesterday could easily be classified as "spectacular." Temps started off in the 30's but quickly warmed up into the low 60's. The Sun was shining brilliantly. Birds, mainly Canada geese and sandhill cranes, filled the skies. Bugs were almost non existent. It made working outside a complete pleasure. I was able to collect data from about 11 wells which seems to be about par for a day's outing. I hope to bump that number up a bit but it seems like something always goes wrong. Yesterday I had to deal with a few wells which had gotten buried as well as a few wells with well caps using allen bolts as opposed to standard bolts. Still, the weather was so nice that it seemed that any adversity could be overcome.
