Chilly!




Another wee cold snap for the teams this week with temperatures starting the days morn at -6 deg, -5 deg, and -9 deg as read from the motors thermometer. This was caused by clear skies that resulted in nice sunny days for the tail end of February. Nice to be working in T-Shirts again even if for only a wee while.

January, February, working in Knapdale

We all get back to it after our winter break , continuing with our contract in Knapdale. We had a helicopter lift of stone and gravel despite gales hitting the west coast, and as usual are in awe of the skills of the pilots as they cope with high winds and trying to get their 'parcel' through the canopy of the natural woodland.
