    Update for the never ending winter season for 2019 here in south western MN.
    Early morning on Wed. April 10th. the blizzard hit hard, and lasted thru Thursday till after midnight.
    Eighteen inches of the wettest snow I've seen in many years. We've had eighteen inches in
    one other blizzard this year, but the one a couple days ago was SO Wet, it was as heavy to
    move as wet cement.
    Many many homes, south of me by a few miles are with No Power now, some for a few days,
    and quite a few have been injured, and some lives lost, from this late season icy blizzard.
    Also a few quonset buildings have had their roofs cave in from the weight, and crush
    some pretty nice vehicles.
    Add this 18" to the 71" we've already had in my area, plus way colder than normal temps,
    50 mile per hour winds, and that makes for a Looong season,,, it's been a Bitch !!!

  7. I sympathize Birdmand been trying to finish up my truck and even when it's warm the garage is cold and takes too much electric to heat it. My dream is to be an electric inspector in the Florida Keys but at 65 probably never going to leave Pa

  23. Yes Dec 21 is the shortest day of the year. Starts going in the other direction after that. So far we haven't had terrible weather. I will go cut and haul another load of firewood today. the grandsoms call the firewood pile Mt Wood more. its shrunk considerably with the last week lows near freezing.

  28. I went and got the load of wood. I had cut two large cull hickory trees a week ago. and used my tractor to skid the entire trees out of the woods and to the edge of a field. Took a little over two hours to cut them up and load them on my truck. And ive already unloaded it. Hickory burns hot ive got it above 80 in here now.

    Nothing like a good hickory fire with a stick of hedge for heat.
