Windy Weekend

Wind: 1, heat pump shelter: 0.

Remember way back when we built a shelter to protect our heat pump? No? Well me neither. Had to look it up, surprised it was only in the fall of 2015. Seems like it has been there for longer.

Operation: Pine Tree Removal

One of our spring jobs is crossed of the old to-do list, in winter no less. We were asked by my Aunt across the lake to take down five pine trees in the spring. They stood about 40 feet tall and were located quite close to her house. After the last wind storm, lots of branches broke off making a mess on her lawn. Most living branches were about 20 or more feet up. The rest were gone. This is what we started with.

Sending Smoke Signals

Happy Friday. Weather here is still holding on the warmer-than usual side. No snow yet, knock on wood. I’m sure it’s not too far off now. Plenty of rain though. I’ll take it.

Busy Weekend

I love Saturdays for some reason. I guess its because it feels like it is the beginning of two days of freedom to do what ever we choose. Although this time of year we always end up doing some office work to get ahead of Monday.

Besides that we managed a few other things, like a much needed power wash of the skidsteer. We didn’t want to leave the mud on it and have that freeze in place.
