@warmwxrules I think water lines have to be at 24-30" deep here. Last winter was relatively mild, our coldest temps were about 10 degrees a couple nights. Last winter was colder, we had one night at 0. But, as far as snow’s concerned, we haven’t had hardly any in 5 years, last winter our biggest single snowfall was abt 3".
No smoke issues here, but we’re pretty far removed from the fires.
You’d think that extra cold timber would be murder on chainsaws. I know it doesn’t freeze, but it’s got to be more difficult to cut it. I have a 16in Stihl for clearing small timber falls and the like.
