We had another marathon wood splitting weekend. Oldest son and 2 grandsons came up and joined in the work about 2pm.
I got several roasts cooked up and canned after serving for a meal and sending some to work with Dave for his lunch.
Today we have horizontal snow going on. The winds weren't supposed to be this bad but they are. The empty trash cans have taken trips in the wind.
