news about the
Spade, working in 1999. Photo: Blake
when many of us were about to give up hope, I got a call April 5th,
saying that the spade was running again and would be crossing the
highway soon, on it's way to a new mine site. I was told that the
crossing would occur on Saturday, April 7th.
to verify this, but not wanting to miss the event, (
if the caller was right ) I hopped in the
truck and headed for
cadiz.When I arrived, it was clear that the spade was moving today.
The road ( rt.519) was closed, and the spade was moving.
stie of the crossing, when I arrived in the morning, the spade is
working behind the trees on the right.
