I'll just be happy to see the 2-2.5" of snow we got last night melt! No mowing here for quite some time this year it looks like.

The grass is starting to need mowing any time from mid April to the start of May here depending on the temps we get. Usually the first week or two of May the grass actually needs cutting, not just when everyone who does this for a living here gets started whether or not it needs it.

God was providing cover from Satan.

Things can change quickly here. 30'c one day, 25 the next. Dry to soaked over night!
You never know mate, things might warm up before you know it! For your sake, I hope they do!

I'm hear all that!

I had a 100+ year old oak come down yesterday morning while we were getting some 50+ mph winds. It has been leaning for about a year now. I'm going to cut it up tomorrow or Thursday, so it's something to do. It's a good sized SOB, so lots of wood in it. Nice long, straight trunk, but no way to get it out in one long piece to sell to a mill. Bummer.

Cant find a mobile miller? Sounds like a candidate for slabbing! Shame to waste that kind of wood!

It's on my property, but on the other side of a fence at the back end on a small strip of land between the fence and the swamp, and no way for anyone to get even a portable mill back to it.
