Currently working a very full Tufford Yard (north yard) in Cadillac. 329 and 399 both facing the same direction for some reason. At least 20 cement loads, probably 50 or more tank cars, ten or more grain cars, and I spy several DJJX empties for Beacon in Traverse City. Selma yard is full of about 20 coke hoppers, 20ish tanks, at least 10 more grain hoppers, countless tie loads, empty center beams, and several wood chip hoppers. Never seen both yards almost at capacity.

Heard nothing today until 1500. Saw 399 and 329 switching Selma yard around 1545. Loaded Beacon gons in Selma. I thought they may have gone north yesterday as I didn't see or hear them.

Left Cadillac for Clare shortly after 1100.

Here they are crossing Seeley Rd about ten minutes later. That wind was brutal, it was shaking me pretty good.
