Playing in the snow on the last day of the decade

As part of our test of the Lodge infrastructure this winter, we are figuring out what snow removal equipment we need. This is especially evident after receiving 17+ inches of snow yesterday. It is a good thing we added a new tractor and snow blower to our line of equipment.

It was nice to see this piece of equipment working in tandem with the Keweenaw County snow removal equipment in order to clear Golf Course road, cabin road, and the parking lots at the Lodge. See the before, during, and after images below.

The crew is happy to be able to remove snow in a tractor that has an enclosed cab, with a heater. We can now keep the Lodge cleared of snow in a t-shirt.  That is a little different than working in the 1987 skidster, in an open cab.

Have a Happy New Year’s eve.
