Click here to return to gallery list.
We started the year with a large project - resurfacing the N-S runway! Then we had a few work parties to clean up various odds and ends. But Mother Nature was not through with us - we suffered major flooding and road washouts in July and August.

Almost there...

Don repainted the propeller on our entry sign. Looks very nice, don't you think?

John Gayer procured a Weather Station for the field; here it is!

On July 7th, the rains came! Access was denied...
Picture
The culvert area was washed out again...
Picture
And major flooding in the parking area and near the runways occurred.
Picture
So, wait a week...and we find AGAIN more rain damage!
Picture
This is a SERIOUS amount of water!
Picture
Another week, and still MORE water...
Picture
...and lots of damage, here and all over!
Picture
Washouts everywhere!
Picture
Will the rain NEVER end? This was a week later...
Picture
By late August, we could bring in the heavy equipment. Here we go!
Picture
We filled 'Grand Canyon' and began to dam up the arroyo...
Picture
Bob Thompson put that little tractor through a lot of work!
Picture
Beginning to look pretty good...
