Snow in March

Winter's last gasp?  We had 8" of snow on the deck yesterday, and it quickly melted down to 3" by the end of the day.  It was a typical early March heavy, wet snow, and since temps hovered around 35 all day all it took was a few peeks of sun to thaw.  These late snows make logging messy.  Trails turn to mud, log landings become greasy and rutted.  Special care has to be taken not to pollute creeks with sediment, and I usually ask loggers to avoid crossing streams if they can until things warm and dry.  I never worry about mud and ruts, unless the mud is flowing and being pushed ahead of tires.  Then, its time to take a break and come back when things dry up.  Logging is messy, and often landowners don't expect the visual impact of it.  But, like I tell everyone, its amazing how a little dry weather, a bulldozer, straw and seed can turn things around, and quickly.  Within a few weeks things on the ground green up, and over the following year or two the forest heals itself.  Its a process that takes time.  We have countless tracts that don't look like harvesting has ever occurred, and many happy landowners who have learned that "if you want to make an omelette, you have to break a few eggs."  Fishing and spring gobbler seasons are right around the corner!
