June 27th – July 8th
The Ragin’ Raleighs arrived home last week to an upset refrigerator. Utilizing their excellent detective skills, the Mikes and Katrina discovered the fridge’s intake valves had frozen over. A hammer, chisel, and copious amounts of duct tape solved their troubles as the appliance began to operate correctly once more.
After travelling north the previous week, the crew knew mountains of work awaited them at the office. The Ragin’ Raleighs stayed extremely busy through Thursday, delivering rough CWPP rough drafts in Wayne & Greene counties, conducting fire department interviews, creating maps, and assessing communities at risk.
On Thursday, the team had a visit from Program Coordinator (Fire & Native Plants) Mike Stefancic. We briefed him on our daily work flow and gave him an in-depth explanation of the project our team is working on.
The week concluded with a large homemade cook-out in our backyard. Our agency partner from the North Carolina Division of Forest Resources and Mike Stefancic were there to join us for the feast.
July 4th greeted the Ragin’ Raleighs with a welcomed half-day of work. Progress was made this week with about 80% of the rough draft CWPPs in Wayne and Greene counties completed.
