Update Friday August 12th, 9am:
We will be open tonight. However road access is still somewhat limited in Buffalo County.
From Hwy 35 in Cochrane, take Cty Rd O. Take a left on belvideere ridge, and then your first right down Yaeger Dugway.
From Alma, Cty Rd E is open to Cream. Take right on 88 for 3 miles and a right on Yaeger Valley Road, then left on Yaeger Dugway.
Access from Waumandee is currently closed as a bridge is being repaired. Status unknown if bridge will be fixed by tonight.
I believe the only access from Hwy 37 is to go to Alma and come over on Cty Rd E to Cream.
Please drive carefully and keep the many people hit by this storm in your thoughts as they work through the clean up.
