    Nice work Sav, I was looking at that saw in the shop last week just looking. It looks like you have perfect working conditions, send some of that this way.

    Just came in from plowing the driveway and the trails to the wood stacks, I think we had 5-6 inches of light snow last night which is still falling. Just having a coffee then maybe a bite to eat then hit the driveway again later on, maybe push some wood in before the nasty stuff hits.( If it does?)

    Since we bought the pulley setup for the Moose Plow it works great, I'll call my neighbor to see if his is done, maybe plow another neighbor in just for fun!;)

    Looks like we are getting out of it fairly easy so far at my place. It is hard to tell with the wind blowing everything around, but I don't think we have any more than 4-5 inches here.

    Maybe tomorrow. Sun is about to set and I'm already sitting. Besides, the temp is falling and I don't want to.

    I don't blame you. The wife cooked up some Chili with some Venison that a friend gave us, some nice homemade bread to go with it.

    Pay no attention to zap Dennis, he's still upset about the rhino and wood piles! :p

    How does tomorrow around 11am sound? I think Pete is coming as well.

    I'm sure ol Backwoods did a fine job clearing a lane to the pine. I bet he DIDN'T even hit any wood piles zap. Maybe he can write down a few pointers for ya? :p
