    Im surprised at the maple being wet, oak I know will still be wet, probably be wet after next year too.
    How did you fare through the storm Ray? Did you lose power at all?

    Lights flickered but stayed on :) Aside from broken branches and grass covered by leaves and pine branches we did OK.. How about you? Amazing how bad NY and NJ look we got very lucky and we hope they recover quickly!

    Yeah we got real lucky, coastal Ct and RI got hit hard too. Mine flickered a few times but stayed on, Ill probably never lose power again since I have an 8000 watt generator now.

    ;hm It's in the barn, now. And it didn't kill me.

    :(!!! But it would have made for a really good "Simpson's" episode. Homer beating on that chunk, bound and determined to get it through the wedge, one boy in tears as he sat in the tractor running the hydraulics over a screaming tractor engine and the other one standing very far away:eek:. And BONG, SNAP, SPLIT.;sick Man, that kid didn't know if he should flee the tractor or pee his pants.;lol I'm having a real hard time writing this...

    Another underlying circumstance was that I had just had a hernia repair a few months prior. The boy in the tractor just lost it, and said in tears, "Dad, I think you broke your belly button again.";lol;lol;lol His eyes were huge and he was so sincere. OOOHHHH chit. Yes, it's funny.... now. -----Kinda tense back when it happened.

    And like I said, it's a blessing my boys allowed me to put another stove in the house after I removed the old one. But they all love it. And they all help out still. And we have a big mission this month. I'll place it in the "wood shed" forum when I get a chance.

    They are great kids. And one day when one of them gets wise to the fact that he is as smart as he is, he will write a book of his childhood. It will sell a million copies and I will be in jail.
