    bad for them good for me

    Well i tryed to get to work this am. Took my normal route or tryed to. Got about 1/2 mile from there and there was trees and elec lines down everywhere, not to mention elec poles. So i had to back track about 4 miles and go in a different way. When i finilly got there and got the gate unlocked i found 14 big trees down in the front yard and not sure how many down in the woods. No damage to the house luckly. Well here's some pics of what i saw and a small gloat. Will be getting a lot more.

    Once you move all that wood, it looks like you'll be quite burly....

    Well as my little 16" husky saw woun't cut through a lot of them trees, i'm gonna what till they bring in the big boys with the big boy saws. Then let them do the cutting and heavy lifting with the bobcats. There is at least one more big burl on that maple that i WILL be getting. And i've got a fair sized cherry burl that i cut off that was to big for me to hall to the truck, but i will be getting that tomorrow if it kills me.

    We are downed tree poor around here too. Big ones, small ones. Trees every where
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Larry not real sure, I'm thinking stright line winds, but havn't heard. We have been having real bad storms the last couple days, with way to mush rain. We're supposed to have up to 6more inches in the next couple days. So as you can guess the ground is saturated already. Some folks are saying it was a tornado, but havn't heard that officially yet. We are under a tornado warning for the next 12 hrs.
