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..." ?
What language are you speaking
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.
My wife went to Cumberland Farms for gas on the way home from her office. Guess what......................................OUT OF GAS. Oh no! The rest of the story isn't that good.
Right that is the bet, I'm taking.
Much clearer than Menino.
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.
If anyone in New England doesn't want this snow please send it back down this way
That sounds like a dream day... I hope you folks don't get anything to nasty. All this storm talk is getting me excited!
Generator is good to go, 30 gallons of gas, pelnty of staples and wine, wood pellets and Envi Blocks galore and the plow is on.......
The only thing better than 2' of snow is 3'! Let's have it
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...
Any envi blocks for sale for direct pick up? I need to stuff my car with some. All out of burnable wood this year. Probably wont make it on this Saturday though!
It has been a long time in New England since we have had a significant snow fall. Bring it on.
batteries, jugs of water, gas tanks in vehicles filled, snow blower ready to go, dog/cat food in, staple food, propane for gas grille..
.nurses report for work tomorrow and told to expect to work 24/36 hours. - next shift may not be able to make it in with blizzard-white out conditions - rest up tonight - MASH conditions tomorrow.
I commend you...tough job.
Oh, no, Armageddon!
Long time? Got 2 feet less than a month ago!
Loaded up the deck rack with wood. Generator ready to go. Set to stay inside, nice and warm, and look out the window.
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!
Pics or it didn't happen.
Twiddling our thumbs here in NJ, as its raining outside....by the way, since when did we start naming winter storms?
Flurries right now, RI/Mass line near the ocean. Parking bans everywhere. All supplied with everything, hunkering down. Shovel and snowthrower ready to go.
Good luck. Before the kids where born that would have included my wife, working at the hospitals in downtown Boston.
