Electronic devices might last well...they are just incompatible with nearly everything after a short time...

Stuff has more mystery problems. Some things just don't need a computer or pcboard. I'm dreading getting a new fridge. All I want is a box to keep things cold, and I want it dumb as a brick; just a numbered dial to set the temperature. I'll adjust it til it's right, then never touch it again. I guess that's too easy...

Spent the day milling my spruce. I'm covered in dust and pitch, and smell like a fire cause I lit another Swedish candle. I was hoping my neighbor would stop over. My 661 with a 36" bar would have blown his mind :^D I was sitting by the fire in the dark, and kept hearing light rustling behind me. Eventually a kitty showed. Looked like Spot, but was hard to tell in the dark. Maybe Mom will make an appearance, but I can't imagine why they'd quit coming for free food.

Lazy NW fall slightly rainy day, after a long dry spell.

Sold some easy view- improvement work to an existing customer. Customer cleanup.
Always grows back!

Maybe it is different in Europe. In the US water heaters, fridges, washers.....etc. do not last longer by design. Appliance stores have told me not to expect a long life.

Water heaters used to last 30 years. I bought a GE at Home Depot. Lasted 6.

We spent the weekend off grid, took the camper to a spot way out in the bush, just below the snow line. It rained it hailed it was windy, it was fantastic.
Back to work tomorrow.
Was supposed to be going to compete with the Tasmania SES in the national disaster rescue competition this coming weekend...it has been postponed due to the catastrophic fire danger rating in NSW and the state of emergency declared for the next seven days...shits gonna get baaaad.

Couldn’t find my ice scraper when I got out of work, was pretty thick on the windshield. What I did have was a brand new plastic felling wedge, I think it worked better than the scraper. Wondering where the scraper went though, I swear I was practically tripping over the friggin thing all summer.

Yeah that’s a good idea.
A lot of folks at work can start their cars with their phones from a further range than key fobs allow.
One of these days I’ll spring for something nice like that. Probably after I’m done with the child support bill.
Maybe heated seats too :)

I’m not too far from Lake Erie ; Lake-effect whacked us with 7ft of snow a few years ago ... sold 3 face o’wood sat with another 3 on the burner - F550 load of logs to backfill what left the yard ... 395xp action and some split work in the am ... was out there 1/2hr ago splitting for about 5mins and said to hell with it , not fit for man nor beast today ! @Jonny Never had heated seats until about 5 yrs ago - best thing since sliced-bread 😀

Not a big fan of heated seats. I do like the heat on my back when it's acting up though. Been meaning to see if I can disconnect the ass warmer, and leave the element on the back, but I've been saying that for a couple years now. Can't find the motivation to track down the rats nest of wires under the seat.

Low key day today. Didn't do anything special, but I did pickup 15G of socialism-free fuel. That should keep me til some time next year.

Got the barrells emptied to use for leaf moving...and have three inches of snow now...Lake effect to start bringing more in tonight or in the morning.

Brushed off the truck, then found out my Sister cancelled two Dr. appt. I was to take her to...I'm good with that, the roads were crap this am and it's a 25 mi drive in heavy traffic to the other side of the big City where she had to go.

Went into work after being in Pittsburg for the expo to find my bucket truck in the mechanics bay of the shop. Apparently he’s begun fixing my engine oil leak. 3 quarts a day was a bit excessive. Climbing bucket jobs for a few days. Today’s was 2 easy spruce and a widespread silver maple with no central tie in. Made a profit but the bucket would’ve had me done in at least two hours less. It was a nice day though. Just started snowing here though. Tomorrow might be paperwork and meetings if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Or if it’s bad in the morning I might have a few of the young bucks come in to do some indoor climbing. Get them used to hanging on a rope and such. 30 employees and only 6 guys that can competently climb, we need some training time. And weather permitting, I plan on hitting up Endor’s arb supply to get a bit of time honing some of my own climbing techniques. The owner is an awesome climber and has no problem helping me fine tune things. Hoping his whole crew will be in actually. I find the knowledge increases with more people present.

Love our seat heaters, both Subaru and Jaguar. The old Tundra is without, sadly :). If the dang cigarette lighter dies on it, it'll be gone :D.

I got home really late today.
Someone flipped a truck over on it's side on the freeway, leaving only 1 lane free...............in rush hour traffic.

So I sat and tried to be a good Zen Buddhist for 2 hours, moving 10 feet at a time.

It works!

Finished up a week long removal gig saved the biggest for last 38"DBH 90'+ oak next to three outbuildings, dump it in the woods and walk away. It was a nice end to the project.
