Well 4 maybe 5 familys of my neibors are drifted in now real good! We have been having 35+ mph winds with blowing snow for 2+ days now. Tomorrow we are going to chain up the Log Skidder and follow it in with the tractor to open there drives up. Not much snow falling less than 3 inches but the wind and the 18 degs is moving all the snow into the low spots. I am OK, take care of it as it falls. The others keep driving on it so they have a deep base packed now with drifts on top. They allways wait and ask for help when it getys so bad the big stuff has to come in every year! If Jim did not have the Skidder it would cost probley a $1,000.00+ to open there drives again. Bad part is after we get it open no one donates fuel for the machines like they run on air. The skidder was sold but it is still here till spring so they are lucky this winter and wonder what they will do next year? Mark H.

Prolly wouldn't hurt to say gotta charge a dab this year, as fuel is costly. They's pay and maybe grumble a little bit. Don't understand people like that, but we've all met 'em!

We chained up the loader tonight and still blowing 35+ but now 15 degs and droping more. They said they would chip in for fuel this time. Mark H.
