    We lost some White Pines in the woods the house sits on, it looks like more shoulder season or pit wood.

    Two are topped off the third is a smaller pine.

    Yes, we had some heavy snow falls. In the first pic, that is where I usually keep the MTD 20 Ton, I had moved it out of the woods four days earlier to a safe spot.

    The May storm I never moved it, the pine branch that came down almost hit it.

    Zap, I hope you have many days like we had today. It was great! My son and family came from PA and spent the night. No air conditioner. Windows open and even left the sliding glass door open. He admitted this morning he got a bit chilly during the night. But he like it too! In addition, the ceiling fan was left on and his wife got up early in the morning to shut it off. She jumped when a deer snorted at her! Yup, deer right by the porch. Living in the country has great benefits.

    Before I started hauling the pine needles, I took care of these downed pine branches. I'm saving the smaller branches for the chipper.

    No. I did get to use the 028 woodboss & the 310 which have been sitting around for about a month, felt good.

    This will go in the area were burning our s/s wood from this year, it holds 1.8 cord so we'll need more. We plan on milling some white pine & hemlock in the next three weeks if the weather is ok.

    County taxes up 14 % this year, not until they come down. But yes, the main part still standing will become boards.

    I like that, we have talked about moving but were not at that point where we have to. I should do what a guy in the Albany NY area did, he put up a steel building with a OWB attach to it, parks his RV inside (lives in it) fires up the OWB in the winter, saves big on taxes.

    If we do move it would be south, it's tough enough paying for your own healthcare let alone some overweight lazy azz workers in this state.
