I figured you've been busy at work, have a nice Thanksgiving with your family.Thewoodlands a little here and there of tractor use. I have been pretty busy at work so not cutting lately. I have moved a few loads of wood here and there but nothing of any real tractor time. Looks like you have been busy looks good!
Sounds like a good plan. We'll be staying home and having Thanksgiving here with our neighbor coming up. We use to head south through the lake effect area for Thanksgiving with my sisters and brother but we decided we would like having it here.Thanks you enjoy the day and family as well. I ended up taking some time off so I'm hoping to carry up some wood and hang outside these next few days.
About seven stumps, about three that were decent size and four that were smaller. The biggest improvement was back in the sandpit area, that is my new splitting area, in the winter it will be easier for me to plow.No tractor work today but me and the dogs carried in some wood to fill the garage back up before we get to much snow. Hope your thanksgiving was good. Looks like you had a busy day removing some stumps.
We might get hit with a Nor'easter Monday, we would welcome the snow but since things can change we'll just wait and see.Yes at least for more than a day or so. The temps kept going up through the night up to 41 today with rain. We are supposed to get 6 -10 inches of snow plus temps back in the teens and 20's so that should help. Kinda sick of the mud and rain in January.
It was cold here yesterday too, we have some wind chills coming in between 30 - 40 below starting Friday evening through Saturday afternoon.The weather keeps changing it's mind every few days we went from cold and snow to almost 40 today. It almost felt warm compared to the last few days of working outside. Yesterday was a tough day, very cold.
Once this cold comes in, we'll be in for another week of negative temps at night but it's January so we expect it.Same here the temps are supposed to get real cold again for the next week. Not sure how much snow but I'll take the ground freezing. That makes it easier to use the tractor for things.
I've seen the propane & oil trucks up this way plenty of times in the last week, like you said, it's nice having a good supply of seasoned firewood, that will keep the propane & oil trucks away.I agree the temps are tough sometimes but for this time of year they are expected. That's why we have all this firewood.
She would do a full dinner, she's a great person who always did her own chainsaw work and if she could help you, she would.Now that you and yours got that apple pie the next storm might even be larger and then you might get a full course dinner...lol Your a good neighbor..clancey
I've been using a Mahindra Diesel treatment, I also have this.Do you guys add any additive to your fuel for antigel when the cold comes in? I use diesel 911 pretreatment 1/4 of the bottle each time I fuel up (8.5 gal tank)
Also we have a new gas station by me that sells off road diesel (died red) my dealer told me to stay away from that stuff, I guess it has a different Sulphur content which doesnt lube as much?
