A change in the weather

img_0008s

The weather has changed big time in a week… gone are the almost 90 degree days with high humidity… it was nice to be able to work in the cool pre-autumn air… 

So this week we installed the last piece of steel roofing. We still need to do some trim work but for the most part the pole barn is done.

We started splitting and stacking next years firewood. Most of it is maple we cut down putting the pole barn expansion up. We have a couple of maples that also went down during storms… for the most part we don’t need to cut good trees down as we get more then enough storm damaged trees each year to more the cover our needs.

We cut down one hemlock, that died a couple years ago, along one of our logging trails… we have three more to remove still… the trunk still looked good so we might have them turned into lumber…

the brush from the tree was turned into a deer blind… we want to put one more in this year… along with added a new tree stand this is the most we have done pre-hunting season to get ready… it’s a nice change of pace…

I posted another video of getting the hunting rifles out… first year we can use them during big game season…

Fall is my favorite time of the year… I’ll be taking the family down for the columbus day long weekend… usually thats when we get peek leaf peeping time… stay tuned…
