with the loppers i can take down a fairly decent sized limb (a few inches across) and not get into sawing/chopping. i'm thinking that this winter after the ground freezes i can get out back to remove some of the shrubs and small trees that are starting to take over. i need some kind of exercise to keep me moving this winter. the past few winters have been mild where we didn't have to shovel much snow and both of us like to do it so i hope some make work project like this will suit instead. since i can't get back there in the warmer months... hope my shoulder doesn't get worse. we'll see. yesterday's outing didn't seem to change it much. good sign.
snowed a little bit yesterday and today a squall has been coming across with a chance of a little rain/snow.
