7:22 am - Thursday - August 5th - Seal Rock, OR - 54° F, 100% humidity, wind 7 mph out of the north by northwest......foggy, thick marine layer....everything is wet outside now, and rain is forecast for this evening.....forecast high for today is 60° F. On this date in 2013 TLE and I were at Flathead Brewing Company on the shores of Flathead Lake near Kalispell, MT having some brews......↴
.....as ditches go this was not a very deep one....maybe 6"....maybe the word 'trench' would be more appropriate, but it is about 70' long. Thankfully, two thirds of the trench was compacted sand....quite easy to dig. The 1/3 that was not sand was through the compacted gravel ingress to the overflow parking area. In all I spent about 2 hours on the ditch.....45 minutes digging 50', and the balance digging the 20' through the compacted grave roadbed into the overflow parking area. I spent the final hour of my three hour shift first doing site checks, then moving the final five spots in the tent area. I still need to trim the hedges in those sites, but it shouldn't take too long. TLE was just coming back to work for the second half of her split shift at 1 pm when I headed for home.
