I wished I could find an old pic. A guy hanging out a window buy his toes and using a fire axe to chop away an ice dam. It was a story and a half up and about 12/12 roof.

Cranbrook2 sent me this way, and I am sure glad he did.
When living in Edmonton, A fellow driving a disposal truck left the forks up and took out a bunch of overhead wire. I was sitting in my car about 4 blocks from were it happened and I had a street light fall just missing the front of the car.
How did the farm do this year ? Is there still lots of water standing ?
The Quill lakes is still a mess, and the water diversion in to the Qu’Appelle is kicked around.
I wish there was a bigger push to make sustainable homes with renewable energy.

Yesterday I was driving to the big city. Just sad to see the farmers burning the flax straw. Should be making straw bale houses.

After that hit I talked about earlier, the hydrovaced the area. They had about 300 feet of line out. I heard a matter the next day 4 hrs was 2,100$.
Reminds me of a 83 Buick my Dad had. they were changing the rear shocks and had a prop to take the weight off the axel. When they let the hoist down the never took out the prop. The car slid forward on the hoist and the floor pan was pushed up.
They did git it fixed but he was so mad he sold it soon after.
Interesting saw for sure. They are also into metal cutting.
Lets hope the brand keeps it chin up.

I have an old General 6 inch. After a move it was out of plane. The guy that helped move said he had to stand on it to get something else above it.
GRRRR. Well I had to take off the outfeed side and shim it. But the old dear just humms along.

How do I get expenses that are 3 months old? Some “yes we will look into it.

Maybe different in the USA. My wife used to work for a big bank. If someone did not give the SS# she would have it with in half a day. Pre internet.
