Last week I sat down with Dr. Yonathan Admassu, creator of DipAnalyst rock slope stability software, which employs a brand new kind of kinematic analysis.
April in Northeastern Ohio seems to emulate the old rhyme “April showers bring May flowers.” At least to some extent. Add in a few days of snow, sleet and freezing temperatures, and alternate back and forth throughout the month, and you’re now talking the typical spring-time weather in this area of the country. May isn’t all flowers and sunshine, either. In fact, up until last week, NE Ohio went a span of over two months with respite from the rainy weather only five days during that period. It was during one of these not-so-rainy days that I was able to visit one of the consequences of our early spring weather.
