Post "Shit Happens" Post

What happens to a tree before it becomes firewood?

It falls on your house......

That was some snowstorm - way too early and way too much.  Our power was out for 9 days, we were out of the house for 9 days, and we now have enough firewood for the next 20 years.  Our contractor did a great job putting the house back together this week, and the only thing left to repair is the fireplace.  

No one got hurt, and we still love living in the woods, surrounded by hardwoods, birds, deer, fox and the quiet that let's you think and dream free of the static of suburban living. 

Today we're going to make another fly tying video with Tightline Productions, and then we'll fish until dark.  River conditions are great - the water levels are good, clarity almost too good, and most of the leaves are out of the water column.  And we have the perfect fall weather - cool with high thin clouds and a slight breeze.

Sharpen your hooks........and your chainsaw.
