First Winter's Aftermath

Winter, 2000-2001

With progress comes inconvenience at times, and when the winter following construction is one of the hardest in recent memory, things are compounded.  

The photo below shows the street conditions in Formoso during February and early March.   (Photo by Mark Fleming)  The summer's work disturbed the surface enough to make things soggy throughout the community with all the snow.  

However, while people have "gritched" a bit about the mud, no one is complaining too hard or too loud.  Everyone realizes the city has had to wait for the trenches to settle before it can resurface the streets in the spring.  Then too, and most importantly, everyone is fully aware of the fact there have been no water line breaks to fix this winter and that only one house has had its internal lines freeze.  The absence of such problems which have plagued the community in the past minimizes the temporary nature of the mud and brings smiles to the faces of those who would have otherwise been in the freezing trenches affecting repairs.
