Another blast of snow on it's way.....

    So says the weatherman. We're supposed to get some starting around midnight, lasting right through tomorrow morning......
    They claim anywhere between 3-8", depending on exactly where you are (Allegheny Plateau on the higher side, valleys on the lower side). I hope we get a foot!!

    Gonna go out tomorrow morning and cut some dead stuff up on the ridge, made some trails up there this evening with the snowmobile (sorry, no pics, the phone was dead). Also found some DANDY saw logs on the ridge (several nice, large, straight white oaks and a MONSTER red oak), gotta figure out a drag or some kind of ski-skid to tow them out with the snowmobile......

    I'll get some pics tomorrow of the area I'll be working. It's a winter wonderland up there right now! FINALLY!!

    That's the best part! This snow will stick around a while. I have TONS of good wood up on the farm to get out, and snowmobile is the only way my neighbor will let me get it out. No four-wheelers or trucks allowed. Which is fine by me. I like cutting in the woods when there's snow on the ground. I'm always too busy to get up there in the spring summer and fall (cutting trees as a part time job), so winter works good. Bring on the snow!!

    1-3 inches in this area with some cold weather coming in for a week. The wood we did get in before the storm is sugar maple & beech so we should be set for another week.

    Snow starts here around three in the morning. Not supposed to be more than three or four inches. No inches would be fine with me.

    Pack your trial up & back several times & make it a couple machines wide.
    Once the trial sets up, should be easy skidding logs out on a sled or dray similar to BWS's
    If it's down hill pull, don't use a rope, log might run you over. LOL ;)

    Snow Good, Rain Bad, couple inches this morning, varies by area. That means I bust my tail for 4-5 hours but net $1k in billing. ( I can live with $200/hr pay scale if I do not break anything including me)

    I think it's done here. Looks like another couple of inches, but I haven't been outside yet. I just know the road is white, and I have to run into Ann Arbor in a bit :mad:

    We got about 3 inches here so far this morning, which leaves about six or so on the ground. I love it!

    8 inches yesterday and I think a couple inches for us today and then later tonight some more snow - probably for a total of 6 inches. Snowblower worked OK yesterday, but would not operate in the lowest gear, should have sent it out for a tune up and a check-over in fall, oh well

    Belts too loose will cause the low speed issue..

    Light snow here now, since sometime this morning.

    Fire in the stove, working on designing some cards...nice. considering going for a drive later to take some pics, but I'm kinda enjoying watching it fall from here in front of the stove!!

    We got a little snow here up in the hills. Didn't know what to do with it, so we started piling it up. Kind of got out of hand I guess.LOL
