We've had choppy, windy, stormy weather on the lake the last two days. This made the process of lifting the anchors, towing the barge, and re-anchoring and re-positioning at Site 2 a real pain. This wound up taking two days, but we finally completed this yesterday at 5 PM. More ominously, our hydraulic problems with the water pump have reared their ugly head again, at least intermittently. But the night shift led by Tim "killing it" Frazier, have already gotten 60 m of core from site 2. The day shift is heading out, and if we can get 2 or 3 days of clean coring we should be able to wrap the site up quickly. At least these storms have given us some nice rainbows. (TDP on facebook)
