    Re: How would you guys drop this tree?

    It might help to clean that heavy bark off for a couple feet before starting so you have a better view of the wood, or not wood :D. It looks fairly loose.

    Re: Blizzard 2015 Boston

    The trash would still need to be dealt with. How about a fire hydrant dumped in the melter?

    I don't get the point of you being hung up on these melters. It costs nothing to watch snow melt, and we...

    Re: Good morning!!!!

    Warmer week ahead, low to mid-80' most days.

    Not much going on today. Walk Milos a bit then go play in the field is the plan.

    Safe trip to you folks on the way to various places.

    Re: Reclaiming a long-lost field

    Thanks. The hills do make a nice back drop. Most of the nasty weather comes over those hills. I got drenched and lightly hailed on last week in the field because I misread the sky there. :)

    Oh Boy, firehouse politics can get tough. We had an "incident" over a year ago and the healing just isn't happening; to the point that several guys have dropped out.
