Whoa, What happened to November? We all forgot, a little, about getting ready for winter. Four good storms and a week of sub-zero or near zero temps here at the end reminded us. Christmas tree harvesting was quite a bit more challenging than it has been for the past 4 years. We chained-up all four when we headed up and had much more fun post-holing through the snow and underlying brush to get every silvertip... still kinda fun. Our lush, rich Noble fir were cut on the small coast range plantation northeast of Portland on Monday before Thanksgiving (in snow) and put on a truck Tuesday morning. Hurrying this way, the Truck was stopped by snow in the Cascades where it waited for the passes to clear and finally arrived here Friday afternoon in time for us to wrap and cover them in anticipation of the next 2 nights of -8°F. They're certainly NOT drying-out... The Thanksgiving weekend was not our most stellar show but we are extremely grateful for all the folks who braved the cold and our disorganization and of course, we are grateful for the moisture and for the snow. Happy Thanksgiving.
