Ran the trail blower yesterday.
Cleaned from Rambo to Rockmart, didn't have time to go further.
There is still a puddle at west end of the Brushy Mtn Tunnel, also, going into to Rockmart there is a couple of sections with water flowing over the trail.

So much wet, soggy debris I only averaged 11.4 mph over the 33 miles I ran yesterday. Without the new turbine blower it would have been just about impossible to get much done. In many areas the trail was completely covered and difficult to see the yellow line or edge of the trail. Even with two blowers, some edges of the trail still had debris.

The trail from the Paulding County line to Seaboard is a mess of wet pinestraw and leaves several inches thick in a few places. I slid around a few times this morning, so I turned around.

Cobb County ran their blower today over the first 8 miles, and it's drying out well. I don't think they ran it mile 8-Paulding County Line. There is some debris but not much on that section.

Too windy to run the blower next couple of days.
Maybe next week...
