Over here after the snow again I was able to work in t shirt on Saturday and Sunday ( some fence/posts repair).. Today again day temps around 5C.. As I wrote there were snow and frosts some of the fruit flowers seems survived... BUT again we will have some 5 days with night temps of minus 3 to zero C.. Madness even bigger.. How such sharp weather changes affect on health.. who knows.. I still haven't taken a frame into hands this season, and seems not at least till weekend.. This is also strange for me.. On top of this that covid situation..

Sorry if this has been posted before, it came from fb.

I thought I'd just leave this here on the basis that Tristan will be along shortly.

Great weather here in the valley. Autumn is certainly our stable weather season.

Good to see the socket is still there if more adjustments are needed . Lack of a safety chain is a bit of a concern , but with such  a solid coupling , probably overkill haha .

I've never been attracted by wood splitters. I have always enjoyed having a pile of blocks and a splitting hammer in the back yard, just wander out every now and then give another couple of blocks the message. August is our firewooding month. As soon as there's room in the shed, down come another few trees, usually blackwoods, this year it'll be eucs. They have two summers to dry before I use them...

yer i have all the wedges, splitting axe etc, but by golly a log splitter is so easy

..and comes with noise & fumes.  Starting an axe presents no problems. Far better for mental health than a machine that won't go.

Yesterday we were told we would get over 100 mm and ended up with 14. Better than nothing but trees are starting to die around here.

Stayed at home because of the forecast and made frames all day. Put on the music and get in the zone. The only way to survive wiring.
