    Ya see a truckload of fresh cut oak layin roadside on your way home from work, and ya just keep on drivin by makin excuses to yourself for why ya didnt stop. Somehow after workin 8hrs in 95+deg, loadin my pickup full of wood just didnt sound fun at the time haha.

    But! After the storms rolled through here last night i got a call from my buddy down the road. He had 4-5 oaks and swamp maples come down and they're all mine.. Headin over with the saw this afternoon. Gotta spend a few hrs on the water first!

    yeah that storm was nasty yesterday. luckily we just got a little t-storm, not much wind like they got in Philly, the southern counties and south jersey. I was watching the news and they were showing trees down all over the place.

    Zap, let's just say im suprised my 80yr old 4ft oaks stood up to it. But we only caught the edge of the storm. Bout a mile south of here the highway was shut down from trees and debris. I took the bike out a few hrs after the storm and they were still pushin trees off the road and there were downed wires everywhere. Sure was nice to finally see some rain though!

    When we had the wind storm in July of 2008 I tried to make it home before the storm hit, I came up about 7 miles short with a tree coming down behind me on the road. I made it inside to one of the local stores just down the road, when the storm passed and I saw vehicles on the road so I made my way back home (trees down all over plus one fell on a car coming down the road, the person was fine) I'll never do that again. The storm did produce about 28 face cord from the woods.
