Same thing going on up here, Natalie. Thanks for showing the pics. At least the roads here are just wet, not slippery. My deck, on the other hand . . . crazycrazy

It's warmed up enough here to allow the ice to be fallin' off of the trees (a hazard in itself) but it sounds like round II tonight!

Yeah its been pretty bad all day. The roads aren't to bad, but yeah the sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, etc. are TERRIBLE!! I honestly don't think we will have any trees left after this is all over!

And its getting WORSE!! The tree in the back yard lost two more branches and the one in front has also lost two more frown. The first three with a road in the picture is Edison and the other one is Ives.

If you know the area... power is out in Finland and Beaver Bay..

Horrible to see good trees lose to weather but what can you do. All you can do is fire up the chainsaw and clean up afterward.

Power has gone in and out quite a few times now.. The city has stopped trying to pick up the trees and has now been pushing them to the side. It's gonna be a long night! I'll post some more pictures tomorrow of the aftermath!

Our power has quit flickering, so I'm figuring the warmup along with the winds have blown a lot of the ice off the power lines. Let's hope it stays that way. We're in a pretty vulnerable spot up here on Finn Hill in electrical terms, because we're long overdue for power service upgrades.

Methinks the people in the richer parts of Ely get the best service, ya know? Long as we have electricity for the shelf-rock basement sump pump, we'll be happy campers. smilesmile

i sorta know the area. i saw the school. My cousin lives across from the school on banks. And have family that lives up in Finland. Hope everything turns out alright. If the town needs any help cleaning up this weekend will have to get in the truck and come on up.

    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
