SNOW!!!!

I woke up this morning to 20°F and it didn't get much better the rest of the day.

It was a light snow, but it snowed most of the day!

It's a good thing I snagged some more dry Oak out of the woods the other day.

About 6 seconds into the video above, one of the cats says hello...

  1. Wow. Nice oak! Ever have boards made?

    I love your video. Your flakes were bigger and more impressive than our little spit balls. I love the cat making itself heard. I have a big mouth cat. Most talkative around 6 AM.

    I was taken to task by a Michigander for calling today "winter". I say if it hits 17 degrees it's not fall anymore. I think that's in the rule book.

    1. I guess I never thought about getting any of it made into lumber.

      Screamer is a talkative cat. Almost to the point of being annoying, especially when he's hungry!

      I agree, it's Winter when I can no longer take the bikes out for a ride because of low temps or the darn white stuff.

    I am constantly amazed at your energy, and how straight all those cuts are. I get tired just thinking about how I would even start to drag those logs out, cut them to fireplace size and stack them in piles in your large garage building

    1. I wish I had more energy! A sharp chain makes the saw cut nice! It's kind of cheating, but the logs were downed about 5 years ago when an Oak disease came through the area and killed a lot of trees. They're dry, just waiting to be cut, split and burned.

      I have my eyes on 2 large 15"-18" Oak trees that blew over in a storm this summer. I don't know how I'd get them out of the woods though. Green Oak that size weighs 500+ pounds an 8' length. There's probably 100+ feet of log to cut up!

  3. Nice kitty commentary. Kind of rude of me but it's nice to see someone else with snow ;-)

    1. Screamer likes to talk, a lot!

      Winter is slowly creeping in around here. It's only a matter of time before it's here to stay.

      I just LOVE to see SNOW, as long as it is somewhere else

      It works out great because I'll take the snow anytime over your traffic and crowds.

    4. I agree, I'll take cold and snow over crowds, people, and traffic.

      Okay, you talked me into it. Is my room ready yet ? you know, the one you were going to put in the corner of your BIG barn. I don't think I can win with 2 against 1

  4. I think your kitty was just upset you weren't videoing him.

    I am always torn when I see weather like this. I love how you get the beautiful sunshine and chilly days but then I see pics and videos of snow and I think - never again.

    Sure is pretty when the landscape is all covered. We used to love to go out for walks in it when we lived in BC - hated shoveling it. Now I am an Oregon weather weenie.

    1. You're not supposed to shovel the stuff. Since this is a moto-blog I could add this reference to the BMW powered R-blower?
