Krautkramer Featured in National Driller Magazine

Mike KrautkramerRobinson Noble’s own, Mike Krautkramer, is featured in the July 2015 edition of National Driller magazine. In an article titled Designing a Dialogue, Water Well Construction Starts with Customer Communication, author Valerie King interviewed Mike about how to properly design and construct a water well for a client. MIke describes how to produce the best well for a client. To do so, he states that the driller (and presumably the consultant as well) needs to have a good idea of why the well is required – such as what is the intended use of the water, how much water is actually needed, what are the other uses of the property, etc. Based on the answers, a driller can do a better job planning and constructing the right well for their client.

Happy 4th!

horsetails with copyrightIt is hard to believe half of 2015 is over, and we are already at the 4th of July weekend. It has been a good year for Robinson Noble as we have transitioned into our new office in downtown Tacoma. Hopefully you were able to come visit during our open house in May; if not, drop by anytime to say hello.

I can’t say I have much Robinson Noble news to report. We did hire two new staff members in the past month or so. We welcome John Anderson to our Woodinville office and Natasha Garland-Clark to our Tacoma office. I will blog more about our new compatriots after I dig out my camera and get some photos of them to share.

In my personal news, I haven’t had much chance this spring or early summer to do much photography because I am revising my ebook into a print version. It will be published by Schiffer Publishing and is due to be released next spring. Not to worry, though, I still have plenty of photos to put into next year’s edition of the Robinson Noble calendar!

Speaking of photos, the accompanying photograph is the closest thing I have that looks like fireworks. Somehow in all my years of photography, I have not captured any good fireworks shots (I’m not even sure I’ve tried), so this image will have to do. While it looks like fireworks, in reality it is a black and white shot of one of my wife’s chief gardening nemeses – horsetails. (These things grow like weeds in our garden – but then, maybe it is because they are weeds.) Even weeds can have some beauty I guess.

Anyway, all of us here at Robinson Noble wish you a happy and safe 4th of July. Take some time to relax with your family and not think about work – there will be enough time for that next week.
