    Today , I sawed up a giant Ash log in the woods. I dropped what remained standing of it last fall . The top had snapped out the year before , I will split the rest for next winter firewood .

    Pretty mild winter especially at 5300' elevation - plenty of snow pack at 9000' though,
    so some Colorado kayaking fun down to all those lowlanders needing water.

    Probably about eight inches yesterday of an unusually heavy , wet snow . Snapped off a couple trees and so heavy on some fence it pulled over metal T posts . Should all be melted by tomorrow afternoon . Twenty in the morning though .

    I sawed up one of muh trees in the woods that snapped off from the heavy snow . Maybe I will work on the other one on Mon . They will both be firewood next winter.

    Snowing all yesterday afternoon and early evening - all Colorado-Wyoming resorts received at least a few inches of new snow.
    5 foot deep resort snow pack on this side of continental divide will melt over April, so expecting some spring fishing fun for neighbor states too.


    Everyone Is Mad at Punxsutawney Phil for 'Deception' Over Winter Weather

    It's been well over six weeks since famed rodent Punxsutawney Phil told Americans to expect the eventual end of winter.
    But with cold weather lingering into late March, some people are assailing the Pennsylvania groundhog as a fraud,
    going so far as to post "Wanted" signs accusing him of deception.

    Groundhog crime: Arrest warrant issued for Punxsutawney Phil for 'deception'

    Monroe County Sheriff's Office has told the varmint that time's up:
    Last week, the office announced that it's "seeking the apprehension of Punxsutawney Phil for deception"

    The weather is as politicized as the news now. Last week we took a road trip from Memphis through Philly, D.C., NH and Chicago. They were predicting this huge snow storm to blast the East and shut down nearly everything. We had a small amount of snow as we drove to Philly and the rest of the trip was completely uneventful. No large snow fall anywhere. The temps were what would be expected for those climes and time of year. Nothing but scare tactics and the sad fact is they shut down schools, businesses, and airline routes for nothing.

    Severe Thunderstorm Warning. Supposed to be really bad all night. It was almost 80 and very humid today. That usually means rock and roll time.

    Electric is out . I just got out of the shower . I fired up the generator at 6 this morning . Debating on weather to plug in the coffee pot to the generator or just have another root beer . I always just light up the whole downstairs with oil lamps when the power is out . Probably about time to make a raid into Illinois to get some fat democrats to make oil with .

    Best practical joke I ever pulled off...

    Many years ago, was on a road trip with ex-Mrs AF and ended up in Vermont dairy farm country.

    She remarked how the dairy cows must get tired or worn out grazing on the steep hills that are all over in that part of the country.

    I told her, with a long and elaborate back story of bull$#@!, how these cows were specially bred over the years to have two legs shorter than the other so that they could stand easy on the hills and graze in comfort. Told her I could not remember the proper name for them, that they were just called, colloquially, "Hill Cows".

    Fast forward a few weeks and we're having dinner with family friends, who just happened to be ex-farmers from Pennsylvania.

    Ex-Mrs AF starts telling them about our vacation and road trip, and sure enough, she starts expanding on "Hill Cows".

    Her friend, Sue IIRC, was looking at her with a look of incredulity, while I'm starting to snicker and so is her husband.

    "Honey, whoever told you that was jerking your chain, there is no such thing as a hill cow".

    "No really, I saw them and then Mr AF said...OH YOU ROTTEN SON OF A BITCH!!!

    "BWAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAH!!!!"

    That was my brothers brand of chewing tobacco . My experience with it not so great . I was maybe 14 and pitching in a baseball game got a line drive to the ball sack before I could get my glove back down , swallowed the Redman and then threw up in the dugout between innings . Had no real great desire after that for chewing tobacco .
