    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....

    Rainfall WarningIssued at 3:37 PM EST Friday 4 March 2011

    Summary
    ..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.

    THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHERN NEW YORK...CENTRAL
    VERMONT...NORTHEAST VERMONT...NORTHWEST VERMONT AND SOUTHERN
    VERMONT.

    .DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

    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 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.
