    I think it's sugar maple. It looks different than the silver maple that I attacked last year.

    Winter finally gave up around here lol. From below zero to 40 above in two days and we are slated to receive 1.5 inches of rain in the next 24 hours. While rain is certainly better than snow (1.5 inches of rain is about 16" of snow) there will be flooding and potential for roof damage to older/weaker structures.

    My home and guest cabin do not have that much snow on them and my metal roofs on the rest of the buildings should shed their load today. Getting to work tomorrow might be interesting as the highway goes through a large swamp, well over two miles long that is prone to flooding even in the summer. One extreme or the other LOL.

    were already showing signs of water flowing here... good to see your still around steve! pulled the boat out so if we flood we can get to higher ground. a fast melt wont be good even tho the frost is not that deep with the snow cover!

    Not sure. Go too far and they freeze in winter and die. I've seen some in Oregon along the coast. We're in the sf Bay area, people's republic of Kalifornia.

    No idea on type. Most all Euc around here is only good for firewood. I did cut up one a few yrs back in this same Grove that was bright red heart and extremely stable and dense wood. A lot of it went to a wood turner friend. It burns down to nice charcoal when I close up the damper on the stove. Even after 3-4 yrs I have to have other wood to keep it burning in the stove. It cut like butter when green and coyld be hand split. Haven't seen any like it sinse.

    Is anyone else having issues on Facebook today? I know multiple people in multiple states who are not able to get in.....the ironic thing is that Instagram is also down at the same time.

    All over the web but no answers as to why FB is down. Lets go with Russian hackers for fun. Or some 13yr old kid with a grudge.

    Interesting, as certain people have no issues but have tried three different logins from this computer and no dice...like they are blocking certain IP's or something. Go figure.
