So Il Logger your not doing your job get out there and ring the water out of them clouds  :D Theres another line of storms just west of us right now and the weather forcast calls for a chance of rain evey day up to this coming Thursday. So the plan is you guys west of me start cutting trees and when they float past I'll load them  ;D

Well bill, we need to get someone west of me to do the cloud wringin :D This has been a bad year already for me, both rain and injury. I hope to salvage the remaining what is supposed to be dry time or I may have to sell out. But it will have to get tough before that happens  8)
>:( no more of that talk. things get bad and things get good......its a cycle.

We are pushing two inches for today that brings the total so far to ten inches. More roads closed then I can ever remember river towns around here are under water.

I'm not a goin anywhere's mike! It's just logging, always a gamble but I can't imagine doing anything else. All my equipment is paid for and it's just a waiting game. But the rain is getting old fast, we may not get a drop but 30 miles north get's 5 inches and the river get's outta the banks. My job's are all in river bottom's, normally this is the time of the year to be in them and the hill timber get's cut in winter while the sap is down

After reading through some newspapers online from out in IL, IN, and OH, I can see we don't have it near as bad here in VT as you guys do. We've had a couple of roads in valley towns get submerged for a time, and we can do much in our woods, but nothing like the flooding out your way.

I used to live in NW Ohio, on the edge of what was once the Black Swamp, so I know what it can be like. Our house became an island a couple of times, and I can remember pictures in the paper of the car dealerships in Findlay parking all their cars on the overpass, since it was about the only place out of the water (they weren't blocking traffic, since both ends of the overpass were under water).

Good luck with it. I hope things dry up soon for you.

I lived a few miles north of Fostoria.

Still get back into the area at times. The company I work for has a manufacturing plant in Fostoria, and another in Wapakoneta.

3"?  You're making me feel better. I was upset because we're supposed to get another inch today.

On sunday there wasn't a cloud in the sky till late evening. Get up this morning and at 6:30 it started to rain again, we picked up another 1/2 inch so far and water is running across feilds like we got two inches. Ive never seen it so wet as it is this summer.
