Snow on Sunday

Friday it snowed 6″. I cleared the driveway and split some wood because it’s going to get arctic cold. Saturday it snowed 4″. I cleared the driveway and split some wood because it’s going to get arctic cold. Sunday it’s not supposed to be snowing … but it is. Monday I have to go for a hearing exam, and the high temperature is expected to be 1F. Which will be warmer than Wednesday that they guess will be -11F. For a high.

Did I mention they hacked a chunk out of my arm Thursday for the biopsy? I’m sure they were supposed to use a scalpel, not a scimitar. Kind of lingering pain that makes using the arm difficult. But I only have to use it for … clearing the driveway and splitting wood.

Gosh I’m having so much fun. Let’s look at some pictures.

I am still waiting on a piece of equipment ordered over a month ago now. I guess I’ll have to report it as missing in action. Zero progress on the plan or any thought of doing more photography with the upcoming freeze-your-battery weather.

Oh and BC still has no vaccine. Thanks, Justâne.

Trail Cam Adventures!

After replacing the dead batteries and defective SD card in my trail cam here at home I got a few interesting pictures. And of course hundreds of uninteresting ones. Not everything that triggers it is worth looking at. There seem to be a lot of images of cars going by, for example. Also dogs. Lots of pictures of the dogs. Funny, that.

Buck mule deer.

Here we have something more interesting than a dog: a buck mule deer traversing the driveway in the night. The infrared imaging isn’t the best, but it’s good enough to see what’s going on. The exception to this is the traffic it picks up which, owing to the low light conditions, tends to be just blurs of light.

Falling from the sky.

An interesting blur of light is this meteor shower. Okay, it’s actually snowfall and that’s just as well as it’s enough to shovel that – I wouldn’t want to try it with meteorites!

Snow? Blow that!

Ah, here’s some old guy clearing the snow. Thank you, old guy!

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin!

A truckload of logs zooming past. This happens quite frequently at all times of day, so logging is active at the moment. There have been times this year with absolutely no logging truck traffic due to total shutdown of operations over the pandemic. This is better.

Mighty machine.

Here’s a machine on its way to somewhere else. Looks like a feller-buncher. The cab is tipped down to ease transport. Or maybe it’s broken and going in for repair.

It’s Duncan.

I said there were lots of dog pictures, didn’t I? This is one of them.
