    We have these trucks in our state that plow snow out of the way for cars and trucks to use the road. Some other states use equipment like this. Not a Cali thing.

    That's a river/lake that's frozen over by the look of it.

    Cancel that. I was looking at the wrong picture. Yea, that's weird. I'm thinking Gorman's guess was best. Snow banks from plows. Takes longer to melt in a thaw.

    I for one have had about enough of this whole winter deal already. Looking forward to another hate filled, goal oriented season next year.

    Nice. I don't think I could live there, but I'm glad you seem happy about it at any rate. You still see the turtle kicking around??

    When you get your badge they give you a plow truck and let me tell you, my warm weathered friend, you are going to need it.

    I mean when you have guys chipping on ice and snow you are going to do something.

    I have thrown in a plow charge and for salt as well on some jobs but mostly just do it to get the job done.

    I love a snowy storm where I am out pulling trees from across the driveways. Hell, I don't have to give an upfront price for that and they get it from all angles when I am done. And that is just to get the driveway open!

    I was just slipping into the glory that is twilight when I heard what I thought were partiers hollering and car doors slamming. The noise went on for a few minutes til I finally looked out the window and saw 20 foot flames tearing up through the woods no more than 200 yards from my house.

    By the time I got dressed all the cops were there and the fire dept was getting it under control. That was like 6 minutes cause I didn't want to be cold.

    We are all a little perplexed about how it got started. It might have been kids trying to blow up the 3 old junk lawn mowers that were in the area the fire started in. But its hard to tell until the investigation.

    It was one hell of fire trail going up the hill. I don't know if it was just leaves or some kind of fuel or fireworks.

    Well, I am up now... til this last round of SoCo and fine Californian hits me... again.


    Getting back to work is going to suck cause it going to be rainy for awhile and my next job is in a swamp but I needs that money. I feel pretty damn pasty, fat and weak after this holiday.

    I do them too. I ask the home owner to give me two pillowcases. I put one inside of the other like a double layer cat sack. I stuff the cat and come down. I must have done it over a thousand times meow.

    Wouldn't it just be easier to cut the branch those vile bastards are perched on?

    Lol! Not a real good thing to do to an elderly woman man! I had a nasty cat a few times. Those are the ones that I usually touch with a twig and they run down the tree.

    I got two likes and no one yelled at me? Well I guess I need to get a bit more vulgar and say I climb SRT.

    Bastard! If you were here, I'd knock a cat out of a tree with my APTA and a 16-oz. bag so I had something to beat you with.
