    Well I was able to get out and survey the full effects of Sandy on Wednesday. I am thankful that we avoided the worst of the storm. Just some trees took a hit, nothing else. I feel for all of those out there who have suffered through much worse during this storm and I hope that things improve for them as rapidly as possible. My town suffered through a tornado last year and we are still cleaning up. It's not easy.

    OK, onto some pics (because I know, I know, if we don't see pictures it didn't happen!)

    First two pics are pre-storm, I was cleaning up a red oak that had been down for a few years, it was perfectly balanced across two rocks so the wood stayed in great shape.

    Some of the red oak bucked and stacked (I really need a quad because lugging these guys out of the woods is not fun)

    Onto the storm...the top third of a white pine snapped off in the front of the house (it's the one in the middle)

    Here's that top partially prepped -

    End of the road (the dog is considering that tree as a bit too large to run around with)

    One down at my neighbors place

    Second tree down in neighbors yard.jpg

    Moving on into the back of the property, I'll post two pics of this guy because I think it's pretty cool

    Same tree, different picture

    And continuing on to the lower part of the lot

    I just reached my ten image cap, so I'll throw the last couple on a follow up post. I think there are only one or two left.

    Here are the last couple of pictures -

    Maple down in the back yardish area

    Cleaning up the same maple

    Cleaning up the maple in back.jpg

    One more in the woodlot (but I can't really remember where it was, getting old isn't easy!)

    I forget where this one was.jpg

    And another in the back of the woodlot

    Lower right of woodlot.jpg

    I have some work to do.....

    And I gotta get a quad before I keel over from a heart attack humping these things out :)

    Yeah, my ability to cut has been severely diminished by a certain 7 month old....

    I'll probably get this cleaned up just in time for the next storm :)
