26 Mar 2019: Kind of a blah day here on the hill with thick fog in the morning high haze in the early afternoon and some blue sky in the late afternoon. Now at dark, the clouds moved in in prep for rain early in the morning. At least all my wood is under the carport and out of any rain that is coming. It's not supposed to be raining this coming weekend so I'll pick either Saturday or Sunday to go get another load of wood.

24 Mar 2019: Spent the day cutting wood on the backside of Mt. Emily. It started out a little chilly with temperatures in the low 30's but as the day wore on, it warmed up to mid 50's. Brought home a mixture of Madrone, Fir and Alder, slightly over a tier. Don't want to overload my little trailer. There is a lot of wood up where I went. I'm totally legal, with permits and in a wood cutting area. It's 15 miles from home but not bad. Only two miles of dirt road. This area has a lot of steep embankments, both up and down. I cut down one dead Madrone and it slid down the steep embankment, even thought I had a rope tied to the trunk of the tree just above where I was cutting. When it fell, my rope stopped it for the most part but my rope snapped. I had to repel down to reattach a steel cable from my hand winch and then hooked it to the frame of my vehicle and winched it up to the road.

20 Mar 2019: We've had some really nice days but today, the first day of spring, it started raining. Yesterday we had deer, Steller's Jays, Northern Flickers and Robins in the yard. There were also a few hummingbirds at the feeder and a couple of Dark-Eyed Juncos catching bugs in the flower beds near the house. Today, 20 Mar 2019, there was nothing in the way of birds, but three deer sprinting across the yard. One new gopher mound so it's time to set up my trap line and become a frontiersman in our grassy slopes.
