last week we were frozen with -30 to -40 temps, today it set a record for the hottest temp ever on this date , about 45 above . What a mess and its to rain most of the night tonight , about half of the fields are under water and so are the bush lots . Wed its to be freezing rain whole day then rain Thursday . Friday its to be back to freezing again
I hear you, 62F here in Northern VA and 5 days ago it was about 0.  The ice under the top 1" of soil makes any vehicle movement ...challenging.  Now if we get that same rain on Wed it will be time to take a break for a day or two.

MAN! I can't think of much of anything that could be more miserable or harder to work with than that. I hope you guys get some relief soon, that's just unworkable.

Yep. Today I thought it was dry enough to get through a gate with my p/u on a slight hill side with my trailer behind me. Ah what the heck. I needed to replace that fence post anyway.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

What you meant was opportunity to make a wider gate.

Mats? Your mats look diffeant than the mats around here. I see what you mean about 2-3 ply now. The mats that I see are about a foot through. Use to be hemlock,but I sold some maple for swamp mats. Most time not trucked on. But the power company went through a big expansion with power lines  and they used some mats!!! :o

Right, crane mats are basically cants bolted together.  Timber Mats or Laminated Mats are rough cut 5/4 or something bolted together or nailed together in layers perp to each other.  These sorts of mats are used to make roads.  It's the mat we are buying, about 10 tractor trailer loads will do it I guess.

Well here we go again worked Saturday and Monday and now ground is thawed out its going to be 60 degrees today and up to 3 inches of rain coming. 60 degrees in Ohio in February unheard of its suppose to be more around 20.
