I know that most of the country is froze over right now, but down here the grass is growing about a inch a minute. I finally had a Saturday that it wasn't raining, so I was able to spend the day trimming and mowing and boy it wasn't any too soon. The ole Wheel Horse almost didn't want to hack thru the winter grass, thick and heavy. Going to have to wait a couple days for it to dry out enough to Vac the lawn to get it all picked up.

Oh man, Brian. That's just plain mean. :poke:  :D  :D

 

I was scraping the underside of a deck a couple weeks ago, and it almost

brought tears to my eyes.

I miss that smell of fresh cut grass.

Could you bag some up, and mail it up here. :thumbs:  :rolling:

Only way to cut grass here would be to mount mud boggers on the tractor.

Will, I would but I'm afraid it wouldn't smell very good by the time it gets there.

Alan mail something a week ago. 4 days.

Amazing.

Anyways, it'd sure smell better than frozen tundra. :D

Brian, could you get a few more panoramic shots of the surrounding neighborhood? I'm looking for a house with a realtor's sign out front. It's -8° here and the wife has had it.

   REALLY!?!?!?!?! I spent two hours yesterday blowing and shoveling then went and did the barn roof. overall I have had enough of this winter so far. got up this morning and had another 3" on the ground.   Cant wait for warmer weather and to be able to tap some tree's.

   That wheel horse looks happy to be out there playing in the grass, glad you are having fun.

Brian,Thanks for the pictures. It's nice to know it is warm and green in some parts of North America. I've got 3 feet of snow all around me. No mowing here until June! I guess you must be getting enough moisture down there these days. It's raining here today. The first day in about a month it's been above freezing for more than a couple of hours. I might even get to wash the salt off the car this afternoon. I'm hoping this rain will carve down the snow banks a bit, although what is left will be hard as rock. I might have to get the loader out and put it back on. That will be more seat time at least.

I think it's a belt-driven swamp cooler?
