    Yep grew up with neighbors that had moved from Maine. We laughed everytime the mrs was around at a party or cookout and talked about a fork. Or better yet ask if you needed one. Need a "F..." ?

    All the crazies were out today. So I avoided all grocery stores, gas stations, liquor store and started the snowblower for the first time in 2 years. Today I saw a station wagon filled to the top with booze, de-icing salt, and toilet paper. If I was a betting man, i would say that this guy is not going have a good weekend.

    Lets see.... I left work an hour early and went to Costco. Line for gas so long that I simply left.
    Got home and stacked the wood I had split earlier this week, a full cord. Then covered it with a tarp.
    Went to HD and got a new wheel for the wood cart and installed it. Old wheel actually exploded last week.
    Started up the generator. Working good.
    Started up the tractor, no problems. Greased up the plow and untangled the wheel chains.
    Loaded the front porch with the best wood of my remaining lot.

    had a beer.

    Now all I have to do is get back from work tomorrow at a reasonable time and hope that 84 isn't a parking lot like it always is in any snow.

    Jeeps are gassed up, snowblowers are all set (i have a real bad back so yes i have 2, small one for the walks, and a monster Noma for the nasty stuff at the end of the driveway), i never worry about them starting because i start them every month of the year. i filled up the cabinet on the deck with the last of the "good" wood, got a pack of biobricks, got food, drinks, got 3 tanks of propane, 3 gallons of coleman fuel for the stoves and the lanterns, coleman catalytic heaters, candles, oil lamps, toilet paper, etc....... We will be fine...

    Just starting here now. I saved some shorter splits thinking we would need them. Don't really need them now,but this new stove is sure keeping the house toasty!
