my Echo could use a good cleaning, too! maybe soon.... dedust it.Good morning all, 0°, nix, nada, nil. Just feels like nuttin'. Sunny and very windy, as it was all night. Motion sensor lights kept coming on as it swirled snow about the place. Yak Trax needed this morning to get to the woodshed and the chicken coop. It's a skating rink out there.Animals are fed and watered, bipeds fed and plans made to stay in today. Too friggin' cold and windy to go out and play. Melting snow did a number on my rocket stove pipe out on the barn. My ice/snow dam got sheared off and then the top 2 sections of pipe were torn away, the rain cap is in the snow some place as well as the stove pipe. Bottom section looks like it started to split apart at the seam. I started looking for the pieces but can't dig under the icy snow with a 3 ft. cover of packed snow. It'll just have to wait a few days. Here are the 2 saws given to me over the weekend. A couple of small saws. I got the Echo running yesterday but it seems to need some carb work. The Poulan is a project for another day.

The Echo has some good compression but it needs a good cleaning. Just like any saw I've ever been given, the owner never cleans out the insides, only the outsides. Play safe out there.
