Spring is in the air and and we are beginning to experience what is known in the North Country as "Mud Season." Mud Season is when the frost comes out of the ground coupled with melting snow. Combined with spring rains, this creates soft, sloppy road conditions on gravel roads - usually lasting through the end of April.
If you are out to camp in the next few weeks or if you are out looking at land, we suggest you avoid driving on any gravel road or right-of-way during Mud Season. (It's a great excuse to get out of your car and take a nice walk!) With newly constructed roads, it's very important to allow the road to settle and become firm. At Christmas and Associates, we will be monitoring the road conditions twice a week throughout the spring, so please feel free to call us anytime if you'd like an update on a road's condition.
