Beam Be Done

It’s done. Took longer than I thought, but at least it’s finished.
Now I have a shit load to clean up, tools and such. All the dust from cutting and crap that fell from inside I cleaned up as I went.
It looks better than what the pictures show.

Facebook Memory

This came up on my Facebook memory today.
I really miss Grizwald. Griz was the smartest dog I’ve had, and can only hope he will come back around to show himself. You could tell he had been here before.

This Week

I haven’t done much of anything this week, just work and stretching for my back. Today I was able to get a few more boards up on the beam, so this completes the living room side. I hope to finish the other side this weekend, shouldn’t be too much.

New Year

Happy New Year and Decade. I hope this new year is better than the last, it sure can’t get much worse.

Well, I wanted to go out for a drive and get some photos of the snow, but now I don’t know. I have to work on this motherfucking roof and get the ice off it. We’ll see how I feel after I’m done and if there is time.

I ended up going for a short drive, just around to Herman, Arvon and home. It sure was pretty with all the fresh snow. I got out to check the Slate River and get some photos. The walk to the river is only about 25 feet, but fuckin a, my leg was on fire before I even got back to the car.

Digging Out

We did get some snow, though not quite as much as forecasted. I got just under 10 inches here, but I’m sure it would have been much more if it didn’t start out with such heavy wet snow that compacted down as it fell. Over night the snow that fell was fluffier after the temps went down. I probably should have cleaned the driveway yesterday evening to get rid of the wet heavy crap, I did shovel the deck though, so that shouldn’t be too bad today with the fluffier snow. Today I need to snowblow the driveway, and that’s going to be a bitch with the wet snow below the fluffy snow and because I can’t walk for more than a few feet without pain. I’ll be eating lots of ibuprofen.


It started snow here at about 7:30 AM, and as of 9:45 AM, the snow is coming down pretty good and accumulating quickly. I really dread snow these days, mostly because of my back/leg pain. I love storms, but having to deal with the cleanup is so painful I dread the fuck out of it. This storm could bring us 12-18 inches of very heavy wet snow.
