Amazing how the weather differs from portland to eugene. We had the cold snap, then about 5" of snow. Then it all melted and now its raining.

That said, people still drive like idiots. Its been spitting snow all day and evening. But people refuse to slow down. Tonight I have been on a 6 car accident on I-5 and another single car accident.

All due to the roads freezing and people being in a hurry to get home after the holiday.

Rain in the forecast, so maybe the snow will melt. Took a look down the main driveway yesterday. Lots of deadfall, I figure a couple days to clear it out. Didn't see any of the larger trees down, which is good as I only have a gas polesaw. If I need to, I can probably load the generator into the truck and use the electric saw.

Then there's always my neighbor, he's a total nut on wood heat. Anyone who wants a tree taken down, he'll do it for the wood.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
