Good afternoon guys.
Very nice out here today :havingarest:.
Woke to 41 and it's now 65 and they are saying a high of 67 still, I don't see that happening though as the temp seems to be dropping now.
Had some big raindrops fall when I was almost done cleaning up all the leaves, pictures at 5, oh wait it is 5 lol.
I had some help doing them today as the boy wanted to drive the John Deere I picked up, he was very excited to use the lawn sweeper which I listed yesterday. He made it around once and then thru the middle when I told him to bring it over for a guy to look at it, he was bummed when he took it with him, sold :lol:.

good morning - 70/89. nice weather next week or so. some light rains maybe as next cool front rolls on in. 1602684496495.png all day today! light winds, windmill waiting. no rains.

got in a great scrounge last nite. just after my evening bike ride. pushing 1/2 cord is my guess. neighbor 10 houses down had in a tree crew... trim and clean, top, too... his oaks. some pecan. (cooking wood) by days end the crew had one trailer filled and got ready to leave with the whole yard still loaded with downed and cut oak limbs. fireplace size, etc... just load, cut to length, no splitting! I had to get it at night. stay out of their hair during the day. and it would all be gone today. so I went for it bit this side of midnight. now just to cut it up. I din't feel right about just two, so got one more. could have scrounged 3-4 more wheelbarrows full easily. but 3 sounded about right. besides, I have a load of oak chunks to split this weekend.

have a nice day...

78/57, last warm day for at least 15 days out

Round two of window washing at the Ranch today

We were told that tires need to have studs during the winter months; just plain old snow tires ain't gonna work .
I suppose getting a set of snow tires with studs would be the way to go or maybe some contraception that wraps spikes
around the tire.

Studded tires work well if you're not doing a whole lot of driving on bare pavement. If you are on bare pavement mostly, the studs will wear down quickly. Just use chains to get you out of the slippery spots.

Good afternoon everyone.
We're at 57 here now and suppose to hit 66, not sure that will happen, much like yesterday, but the clouds/overcast could clear out and warm up for a quick bit yet. Overall the temps are cooling and they are calling for 30s Fri morning.
Lots of running around already pictures of the crews adventure at 5, I'll just say it's whatever floats your boat lol.
Hope your all having a nice hump day.
