Paperwork is all done and the land is ours. Just need to get into town and grab the documents.

We had the first snow of the year a couple days ago but it melted in a few hours.




Got another light coating yesterday that kind of stuck around (it was COLD outside) and possibly will see a real snow storm on Friday.

Congrats. Haven't had yet as much rain as I would think with all this gloom and doom snow storm they're predicting, but I reckon I'll see in the morning how much we're sending your way.

Happy Thanksgiving!

40 degrees here with lots of wind and some rain. Supposedly temp will drop and it will turn to snow but weather reports suggest it won't be the heavy snow they first hinted at.

If it doesn't freeze up I feel sorry for my UPS guy who will be driving through the rain/mud to make a delivery later today.

Edit: Rain really picked up right after I posted the reply. It's pouring now.

Edit2: Snowing like crazy now.

Went from pouring rain to this in a flash as temps dropped from 40 to 32.

Yeah, we had a tornado warning. I heard a roar like a cargo plane flying low. The rain was coming down in buckets. Whatever it was, it passed over us.

I've lived here for 15 years and I've never seen a tornado warning before this morning.

Well Steve, when I woke up, the power had just went out and the snow just started. By the time the power came back on three hours later, I had between 5-7 inches of snow, and I figured it was too late for me to 'warn' you, lol.

Almost built a fire, glad I put up some wood on the porch just in case. The danged Coleman lantern stank, didn't leave it on for long.

Seems to have pretty much stopped for now @ 5:00 pm, I think we're at around 8 or so inches. Reckon we'll see if there's more to come overnight.

Making me a mean pot of chili today, perfect weather for it.

No warning was needed as we were expecting the storm. It was just a surprise as to how quick it turned to snow. Literally as if a switch had been flipped.

We only got a couple inches and it was melting fast as the sun came out and aren't supposed to get more.

No loss of power here and we already had a fire going in the wood stove for heat in any case as it's our primary source.

We got a further light dusting of snow overnight and awoke to 20 degrees outside.

News reports there were actual tornadoes down in the Valley.

Yes. Three. LOL. I didn't see any "reports" of actual funnel clouds/pics but weather radar saw them apparently. News showed lots of microburst damage which interestingly enough LOL, resembles what tornadoes do. East valley, east central Phx.

If you don't mind my asking, what does 2 acres of bare land go for in Prescott Valley?

Is that wood burner a 'Pioneer', Steve? Looks just like mine, but mine is a single door.

Nope it's an old school 'Fisher', the Grandpa model (their largest).

Mine's a bit larger and has a 20"x24" firebox.

As far as I know Fisher shut down when the EPA mandated big changes in the stove industry. Though their might be a franchise still building stoves in New Zealand. Fisher provided the plans and guidelines to multiple franchises instead of building all the stoves in one place. Thus avoiding the shipping costs.

Is your Pioneer connected to Pioneer Stoves that build stoves for the Amish in Kentucky.

The rain started about 22:00 last night and still drizzling this morning. Suppossed to rain through Monday. My driveway turns into a slip and slide when wet, so won't be going anywhere until it dries out.

Despite feeling like hammered crap from a cold, due to the expected rain we went to Show Low to Home Depot yesterday to pick up some furniture I ordered online. They said I couldn't get the Military discount on it since it was done online but that if I bought something else they could take the $85 that would have been the amount of the discount and apply it to the other purchase.

So we had been looking at chainsaws and decided to buy the Echo CS590 Timber Wolf ($399.99). Between the $85 credit from my online purchase on top of the regular 10% military discount on what I was buying in the store I got the saw, spare chain, 5 cans of fuel, extra scrench and a couple misc non-saw things for $388 OTD.

Is there a break in procedure for chainsaws?


One nice thing about being retired, this is only the second time I have been sick in the last 4 years. Caught the first off one of the neighbor's kids a couple years ago and pretty sure I picked this up from a lady in the laundrymat last Monday. When I was working a cold would work its way through the shop at least once a year. After all no one wastes sick leave on being sick right, just go to work and spread the joy.
