    Snow melt has contributing to flooding around here. Rivers are swollen around here, particularly the Missouri River, which we crossed over into Missouri today. The fields around it are a flood plain and they were flooded, up to the tires on the irrigation sprinklers in the field. It hadn't breached the levy around the field, but it was pretty impressive. I-29 is closed from St. Joseph, Missouri up to Council Bluffs, Iowa due to flooding. Volunteers have been sand bagging along river towns, and things have crested. But now we're predicted to have more rain over the weekend, so we'll see how things go. Not as bad as the '93 floods so far.

    I don't know if anything wouldn't have left ruts in this loamy lake-area soil that was still mucky from water run off of the rains last week. But the chipper tends to make the worst ruts, since switching tires to 4000lb. thinner ones than the stock factory ones (hard to find replacements for those). They cut like a knife, leaving sharp, crisp ruts.

    Ouch. Did a bunch of stump grinding Monday and could tell in my hands that the operating of the levers was very hard on the hands. Maybe very noticeable after being away in Florida for 10 days and then coming back to it. But I've had bouts where my hands would spasm and go into a clench -- like a charley horse of the hands. I think I tend to grip the chip truck steering wheel too hard as well, but I'm making a conscious effort to relax the hands while driving. But it's automatic to grip like crazy driving through Kansas City in-town traffic. Have to be ready for a split second defensive maneuver. I have some measure of instant relief doing the Wanderlei Silva hand roll: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/pLh_O4RyuB8" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    My stack of plywood has been sitting at the shop unused for almost 3 years; since I bought the Nifty Lift! I'll never own another bucket truck.

    Still about a month out and lots of estimates out. Bucket truck is working out great, use it on most jobs nowadays, unless it's a tree way out back. We won't forget our climbing skills, though!

    Worked for a friend's mother today at a friendly day rate, by a private lake in an exclusive neighborhood. Rolled with the bucket truck & chip truck today. I did a canopy raising on a white oak, then removed six small hackberries along the property line along with briars and other saplings. We took out two silver maples (clear drops) and a medium hackberry. First full day of spring, and I was sweating a good bit even at 60˚F -- salt stains on the t-shirt. She bought us gourmet pizza and energy tea for lunch -- yum! Fixed a few shorter ruts and again picked up the plywood highway leading to the back yard. AlturnaMats coming soon. Our $50 deal on sheets of OSB & random plywood is quickly getting chewed up after 2-3 jobs.

    Not my own photo -- just representative of the injury (black/purple, double size foot). I didn't have the bacon look, that's for sure.

    Same with my ankle ligament injury. Would've been better if I would've broken it, but 8 weeks of physical therapy and not letting it atrophy and continuously working it since have kept the range of motion open and helped bring improvement where it felt as though it would never fully heal. But there is scar tissue and soreness develops flexing on terrain and by end of day. I'll never run any distance again, but at least I'm daily functional.

    Today went well enough. More street trees. Lots of wires. Lowered down a nest of baby squirrels and left the hollow piece by the stump in hopes that mama comes back to relocate them. Oh and the 1250 Vermeer was sold yesterday. Looks like I’m buying more gear tomorrow
