Another rain day

Filed under: archaeology, archeology, Oklahoma, rain delay, survey — John @ 6:04 pm

It rained here in Ada (and central OK in general) all morning. It’s clearing up now, but it was pouring for a while so we scrapped going out for the day. Too bad, as it’s in the mid-60s outside. If we can make it through the rest of the day with no rain, it may be a pleasant day for survey tomorrow.
Considering the crazy weather of the last couple of months, the fact that we’ve only lost 2.5 days of work to rain over a month is really good. With the exception of last Monday and today, the worst storms either dodge us or pass through in the night.
Spent most of last week in Austin, sweating my butt off and spending money like a sailor on leave. Got to hang out with a lot of people, which was very nice. I also saw Afrika Bambataa at my friend’s record store! And ate breakfast tacos on more than one occasion.
The Oklahoma survey is proceeding rapidly. We’ve made it up to milepost 110 out of a total 158. Of course, there are a number of gaps in there where the landowners have denied access, but we’ve still surveyed at least 80 total miles. After this week, they’re probably going to reduce our group by one full crew. We have a couple of people leaving for field school in Belize, so it really only means that one crew member and one crew chief will be leaving, and there’s plenty of other work waiting at the office. If I’m sent home, I’ll probably be in Louisiana before too long, wading through the bayou.
Now, to work on my thesis for a while.
