morning went great but after lunch started off slow :cheese:
went to look at a couple trees and didnt quite make it. gotta a skim of crusty snow on top that you can walk on but not drive on ;-P
this pic is back at the farm as i wasnt gonna stop once i got it out..plus i walked enough today
the afternoon ended up alot better ;-P went down to the cemetery and cleaned up some trees that a pro tended to yesterday.
3 more of these loads tomorrow. 6 total..
and here is a side view of their home Andrew ;-)
Keep them coming Loon they get better and better. Looks like we might have some rain coming in (1-3 inches) should make things real messy.
supposed to be nice here today zap, but also calling for rain tonite and tomorrow.
finished it today with 7 loads in the trailer and 6 in the bucket ;-)
Great photos as usual Loon . . . let Murphy know he's doing a nice job on the Fire Watch.
will do jake :cheese:
my buddy Leo and another fella have been tending to the cemetery for years and i was talking to Don last night who said when the boom truck was backed down by the shed it got stuck %-P so as they were waiting to be winched out they got the boom in action and had a whack of the work done by the time the truck arrived.
had to ask him if he took some pictures?? he just laughed
we talked in the summer about me dealing with the problem wood but there were headstones and that brand new shed in the line of fire..
so it was decided the church would hire an insured company....
Nice turning radius, have to love a single axle trailer.
works great and the thing is older than dirt Solar.. ;-)
Murphy working as your navigator and riding shotgun I see . . .
Emma was tending to a stick in the dog run..so it was just me and him jake... :cheese:
Loon, I think the dogs are ready for HollyWOOD!
zap, how does your day look tomorrow? %-P
sorry about the metric crap.. but it's alot :cheese:
Rainfall WarningIssued at 3:37 PM EST Friday 4 March 2011
..Significant rain tonight, Saturday and Saturday night.. A substantial rain event is slated to begin tonight as a front stalls on a line from Central Lake Huron through Georgian Bay tonight and Saturday. Plenty of moisture migrating northwards from the gulf of Mexico combined with decent lift along and ahead of the front will cause widespread rain, occasionally heavy, to envelop much of Southern Ontario. It will become heavier overnight in the southwest and then spread northeast affecting much of Southern Ontario on Saturday. Eastern Ontario will experience the heavier rainfall later Saturday into Saturday night. Widespread rainfall amounts of 25 to 40 mm are expected tonight through Saturday night. A few areas will likely exceed 50 mm. The rain will change briefly to snow before ending Saturday night. The warning criteria is 25 mm within 24 hours (fairly conservative criteria) based on the fact that runoff is more significant in areas where snow pack is minimal and the ground is still frozen.
think i will be in the garage ;-)
THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHERN NEW YORK...CENTRAL
VERMONT...NORTHEAST VERMONT...NORTHWEST VERMONT AND SOUTHERN
THERE IS A CHANCE OF MIXED PRECIPITATION TONIGHT INTO EARLY SATURDAY
MORNING...WITH ONLY LIGHT ACCUMULATION ANTICIPATED.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
SIGNIFICANT WEATHER ANTICIPATED THIS WEEKEND ACROSS THE NORTH
COUNTRY...WITH HIGH IMPACT POSSIBLE.
THE COMBINATION OF MILDER TEMPERATURES...ALONG WITH INCREASING
CHANCES FOR HEAVIER PRECIPITATION AND SNOW MELT WILL CAUSE WATER
LEVELS TO RISE ON RIVERS AND STREAMS THIS WEEKEND. THIS WILL
INCREASE THE CHANCES FOR ICE BREAK UPS AND THE POTENTIAL FOR
ISOLATED ICE JAMS TO FORM. IF ANY ICE JAMS FORM...YOU CAN EXPECT
RAPID RISES...ALONG WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALIZED FLOODING.
PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR RIVER LEVELS AND THE LATEST STATEMENTS
REGARDING THE POTENTIAL FOR ICE JAM FLOODING THIS WEEKEND.
IN ADDITION...THE THREAT HAS INCREASED FOR A HEAVY WET SNOW EVENT
LATE SUNDAY INTO MONDAY ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY. THIS COULD
RESULT IN SCATTERED TO WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES...ALONG WITH AREAS
OF DOWNED TREE LIMBS. AT THIS TIME...THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR A
SIGNIFICANT HEAVY WET SNOW EVENT IS FROM THE NORTHERN ADIRONDACK
MOUNTAINS IN NEW YORK INTO CENTRAL AND NORTHERN
VERMONT...INCLUDING THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY. THERE IS PLENTY OF
UNCERTAINTY WITH THE EXACT TRACK OF SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AND THE
RESULTING LOW LEVEL THERMAL PROFILES ACROSS OUR REGION...WHICH
WILL POTENTIALLY IMPACT OUR PRECIPITATION TYPE AND AMOUNT.
PLEASE STAY TUNED TO LATER STATEMENTS AND FORECASTS ON THIS
DEVELOPING AND POTENTIALLY HIGH IMPACT EVENT ACROSS THE NORTH
COUNTRY FOR THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND.
Thanks for the heads up Loon, we did push enough wood in so we could fill two racks plus we pulled the side cover down on the wood we're using so it won't get wet.
still raining hard here zap!! you? got the bathroom cupboards painted though
Still raining hard this way also Loon, we took down some hung up branches around the house plus I ran over to recycle and thaT Is it. They're forecasting 8-16 inches of heavy snow starting later tonight.
I did take a run down so I could check the brook this morning (not bad) but when I go down in the morning on Sunday and Monday the water should be hauling a__ down through.
snow all day tomorrow also, but not half as much as you guys :cheese:
ended up being not that bad a day here zap (big wind) ;-P but still get a kick out of Emma not being able to get in the truck :cheese:
6'' bunny hop's and thats it
So far we only received about 5 inches with more coming in tonight. Did Emma ride in the cab or did you give her some help?
we mighta got 2'' thats all? and yes she endend up in the cab

Well over a foot overnight Loon, what did you get for snow?
