... thanks for the post ... sounds like you're really enjoying
the 'climate change' in your neighborhood, LOL! It's still early-like
Fall here ... 40s at nite, 60-70s daytime, beautiful leaves along
the Rio Grande and in the mountains. Cleaned off the backyard
garden, which serves as a firewood yard in winter ... expect to get
a cord next week. Got the chicken coop winterized ... things clipped,
raked, put away ... dreaming of a white Christmas!

Still preparing, still stocking up.  Son in law and I split the cost of a hole cow,  190 lbs of beef each at 3 bucks a pound.  Bout filled 2 of my 3 freezers,  now waiting for the pig me and son purchased,  January the butcher said.  and grandson just last couple weeks gave me 1/4 of a deer.  Let it snow, we'll be eating good that's for sure.

   Its a biting cold in south central Pa this morning,  having my usual morning coffee (s).  House been all decorated for Christmas,  fire crackling in the woodstove,  dogs barking at the menonite buggies going down the alley,  peaceful feelings.
   It was a good year business wise, Thank you God,  seems there was more spending cash with trump at the helm.

Not much change in the area  last couple months,    snow is laying on the ground,  I hate winter, but do hope we get dumped with a lot more, cause I always believed that a hard winter brings about a great summer. My upholstery shop has been busy, and that is good  Dec, and Jan by history usually slow months, so that is different. Still got a good supply of wood on hand for the stove  and cupboards are full.   Thank God for are blessings each day.

We burn year-round for hot water. Current delivery of logs are generally green and heavy. Been having to noodle them to make the weight more manageable. As I read on another forum, it's not worth blowing a disk to lift that stuff. So, I've been rolling 3 ft sections over uneven ice pack to the work area. Some ice doesn't melt that quickly when there's an inch or two of sawdust on top, even in direct sunlight. Huge relief to significantly lower the wood consumption with the warmer temperatures. Less of a slave to the stove.

Met a few other guys like myself over the winter who are tearing up tendons and ligaments in the elbow area because of improper technique and...er....age. Finally figured out that repetitively supporting a lot of weight using fingertips is a bad idea. Same goes for lifting with the wrist and not the arm. Epsom salts really do work. Another tool in my anti-inflammatory arsenal.

Hearing what might be grouse noises in the distance out there. They should be mating soon if not already. Come to think of it, a lot of species should be birthing/nesting/denning soon. Saw a couple of foxes over the winter. Stunningly gorgeous animals.
The number one cause of all human poverty, misery, and death is not global warming. It’s GLOBAL LYING.
