Anyone know where the rotary plow went to?

The last I heard it was left at Lodgepole, they've had the Jordan Spreader running back and forth as well, it seems to tie up at Lodgepole. Just in case anybody is visiting the A21 short cut was not plowed as of Saturday. Not sure if they leave it as is all winter or how they go about that.

The A21 used to be open all winter, but was extremely treacherous and super-slick. I can recall helping to get folks out of a ditch on one occasion. The last time I went up that way I noticed they have gates at the ends, so perhaps it is now closed in winter.

I have had a few adventures in the winter going across parts of A21 that don't get sunlight.  More fun than an ice rink on sneakers.
