Yesterday, between rainstorms, I neatly trimmed the heck out of our trees. in the back and side yards.

I really like the pole trimmer/electric chainsaw I bought.

My pole saw, the saw comes off, and becomes a chainsaw

We, (the wife helped, even running the chainsaw!) really opened up the back yard to more light, and neatened up the yard a lot! And there’s still lots to do.

I know you lumberjacks out there are saying, “That’s not a chainsaw, it’s a little toy!” Well, it gets the job done, and I was originally planning on getting a big ‘ol gas chainsaw, but gas engines, when they sit around, tend to not start and need a lot more maintenance than electrics. Plus, I’ll hopefully only need it once a year. I’m happy with the one I got!

Here, it’s very rainy, with rain expected all week. It rained a lot yesterday.

Now I gotta go make my lunch, and get ready for work. Have a great week!
