nothing but sleet so far. And yes the air filter is clean. Just threw down a layer of salt.
Salts down but bet its not going to help much! lol sheets of ice here already.
Prepped the tools sunday after cutting all last week.Bring it on. :vampire:
Dayton Ohio, give it another hour and your in it too!
Good luck to you all. We are just getting snow here. I guess it pays to live north sometimes.
You sure would think it would be all snow its 22 degrees out so everything this rain touchs turns to ice. This could turn very ugly....
Warmer air aloft and there isn't enough time for the moisture to turn to snow before it hits the ground. It is at times like this I especially like heating with wood!
Good luck Jay.Brought a weeks worth in to save time going to the stacks,mite get a little hairy.
Forecast changed a little here,sleet/ice stopped earlier.Roads are getting bad already,lots of cancellations,travel not recommended overnight unless absolutely necessary with 2-3 inches snow tonight.Blizzard warning from noon Tuesday to noon Wednesday,40-50 MPH gusts most of tommorow with heaviest snow tommorow night 7-10 inches total by late Wednesday,up to 16 in isolated spots.
Thanks This is going to be wild! 20 gallons of gen-set fuel and 2 1/2 gallons of mix 3 gallons of veggie oil.... Oh and a cord of hardwood dry!
We are the same other than the first part is rain. Heavy power lines and breaking tree's for sure.
Low 70's sun shining and the palm trees blowing in the breeze here in Michigan! :lol:
Looks like all snow up here, Wednesday it's suppose to get bad out. They are calling for 13,5 of wet heavy snow so maybe a day off and one last run back in the woods for some dead standing plus a topped off Cherry.
The saws will come in Tuesday night for a cleaning and some fresh metal then maybe a day in the woods.
Pouring rain here how and of course freezing to everything...
Looks like it's going north of us.Were going to take a hit but Jay your in the cross hairs.
I'm in southern Parke county, a little N of Terre Haute. It's pouring rain and getting pretty icy. I just walked the Lab and we have a couple tenths already and the "storm" isn't even here yet. Neighbors white pines are sagging hard. Couple small branches down. It is going to be bad...like this could send us back to the stone age for a week. Cord of wood inside, saw is sharp, quad fueled up, fridge and pantry full, and beer on hand. I'm concerned, but not worried...

W A R N I N I N G -
We have a NON COMPLIANCE issue
On a lighter note,did you catch any stripers last year.
Another Indiana boy with a 361...lol Same here just rolled in a few min,s ago with the last stop beer! Going to be one we will take about for awhile. Trees are going to be snaping everywhere...
Last year (and so far this year) we are down 3 equipment mechanics - So 6 - 12+ hr shifts where the norm from April to October. I can't remember the last time I drowned a worm! Good thing that I can keep some time on the books, but a lot of good that does me when Mother Nature is on that time of the month from Dec. on
Bring it on. Wood stacked right by the door, rack full by the stove. Plenty of gas for the generators (I can spit on the power plant from my house, so we shouldn't be without for too long!), plenty of food and beer, saw is always ready to go, and Truck is loaded with "survival gear"
I'm only worried about being without internet and/or cell phone.
Just got back from ice melt application 1. Not even putting a dent in it. Going to be ultra crappy for a few days.
Truck is tarped, beer cold, fire hot, and still on the grid here. Time to get sharpening.
I'm wondering when I'm going to lose power. Like the rodeo saying...it's not if...it's when and how bad.
Salts not working here either. Furnace blazing saw sharp and beers cold......Oh and its not Sunday Wooot Woooot!
