Surely hope you enjoyed the snow we sent down bout two inches here, or so.....not enough to worry about, though, 'spect it will see the way of the last batch we is a slow process, help is the issue....can't get up on the ladder, and working on the roof is a positive no-no...I guess doing everything myself has gone the way of the dinosaurs...well....not entirely.....will see...have a good one, R.E.L.

well im still getting it you can turn it off anytime, i don,t want to remove any trees this winter (im aiming for a record so dode and col can,t pick on me next summer)you just might want to stay off the roof this time of the year , gets might cold quick if the ladder should happen to fall, maybe we should have a western KREW reunion this summer invite the rest of the KREW especially the eastern boys, give that texas dj the whip and let him work them boys should be done in no time.hear from dj an tammy lately been thinking about them lots lately, maybe we,ll se a big ole motorhome with texas plates pull in after all, hate to be the one to have to tell that boy he missed the stampede though .

Were at 2+ inches now and still coming down real light. After I fell off the roof and broke my foot I am a big chicken up there now! I use ropes and proper ladders all the time. Takes a lot longer to do it the real safe way now but I won't be falling again! I don't hammer as fast anymore not working my trade all the time so construction is also slower but it does get done. Hang in there the shop will get done befor you know it. Mark H.

I hang mine under the wrap around porch between the suports holding it up, easy to go up and come down with out a ladder. If I put them on the roof edge the snow would rip them off when the roof clears. Mark H.

you have tin on your roof , i have shingles not a problem for me , im goin to take them down though and replace them with the diode light s i think, the sun fades the ones i have now and have to change the bulbs evey few years, what do you do with your eves troughs in the winter, folks with tin roofs around here have to take them off or they get ripped off when the snow slides.

You northern guys are tougher than aligators. But you really dont have to be .Did you know it wont snow at all down here this year? No slippery ice,You wont have to dig to find your car..One more item,,There's room for all of you down here.Just head south till you see a big pond of water and stop.

Right near here is a place where the Trinity river ends and the bay starts for Galveston We would live on an island in the bay at the swamp.Some years ago thousands of geese would swarm in . they are hard to get down ,(for me.) But I loved wasting the ammo.

sounds like a nice place down there , hope to be able to visit that part of the world someday , would like to go down the west coast and cross the southern states up the east coast and back to my home in nova scotia.
