BUT, not to worry. 
They were found in the spring.
(The mittens, not the kittens.)
(The kittens were carried off by a turkey vulture long before spring.)

I haven't got the wool out yet guys. ::) It was about 65 here today and the shirts were soaked through. Give it another month. ;) The good old sun kept the house warm today, no fire tonight.
Move'n on.

Well now, @rjwoelk, see what happens when some unfortunate souls spend far, far too much time in 100 degree F temps?
They're good people really, they'll come back to their version of NORMAL once they cool off!

Sorry, I got caught up in that latitude-based rebuttal, rj.
Your system seems to be delivering the goods, well done!
Same wood processor and a new conveyor = a warm winter!

looks like you are busy as a beaver. Looks like I got 40 days to go and back on the road. Still have a lot of work to do. But did get lots done. 2 weddings and a set of twins was a busy year.

I scooped the end cuts out of the pile with the little loader, fed them to the big loader, and dumped them in the 550.  That will last a little while.  Supposed to have lows in the mid 20s next week.  I've got about 40 face cords on the books and then I'll run off the 30 we need to fill the shed.

A lot of the country is having below normal temp's. It was 18 degrees here the other morning and some wind making the windchill in the single number's. We got lucky and missed the snow so harvest is still going on. 32 this A.M. makes people and equipment a little slow to get going. Got to get this harvest finished and get back to firewood processing before my helper's turn there focus to deer hunting in two weeks.

Meanwhile, it was 65˚F for Halloween here - as warm as I can remember it ever being. I can remember a lot of years wearing winter coats to follow the kids around trick or treating. This was an unusual October for us in that we did not even get a dusting of snow.

We had an all time record setting wet October.  Over 60" for the year and over 12" in October.

Yep, we have had lots of rain in October to, the summer was bone dry, so good for the wells. My well in only 80 feet, and been lucky it has never dried up in my 52 years. And is good water to, no odour or taste to it and now I even run water softener because it is hard water. Sure cuts down on the cleaning and scrubbing from lime scale. :D

Will be putting on an afternoon smudge to take away the dampness. :)
Move'n on.

We are forecast to see the 30's this weekend and low 20's next week so I brought up another couple of wheelbarrow loads.  :o

I use a wheel barrow sometimes to gather in the woods, then throw into the bed of the truck. ;D That is when cutting road side. A wheel barrow is a handy thing. ;)
