My Police Officer son and his fellow officers spent lots of their time pushing cars out of ditches cause for some reason people do not believe it when they are told conditions are dangerous and to please stay home. Local police cars could not function on streets that had received 19 inches of snow so the local National Guard was called in to assist and the officers rode in hummers to answer their calls. I'm sure my son was delighted!
Unfortunately, I keep hearing rumors that another big snow is coming next week. All I have to my front door in my townhouse is a shovel wide path with probably 19 inches of snow on each side. I'm beginning to feel hemmed in already!
Spring, how far away are you???
Tool Belt Jim decided to go out in the woods and see if he could build a fire. Just because.
|Potential fire Location|
|Cedar bark did not work as kindling|
|It takes fine dry sticks like this to start a fire. (dry grass doesn't work either)|
|The tinder pile|
|The result! (after 10 matches)|
