    Hearing chainsaws always reminds me of the aftermath of hurricanes. I live on the Gulf coast, and Ive heard many a chainsaw and chopped many a limb. Using an axe is hard work. Man o man, sounds like you got lots of exercise today!

      comes with these summer storms. Straight line winds can be as bad as tornadoes.
      I'm getting too old to do that kind of cleanup but there is just something about rough labor that I can't not do it. It's a compulsion that reaffirms my ego in terms of value or worth as a manly man perhaps.
      I've got a chainsaw (not running right now but soon to be rebuilt) that runs a 32 inch bar of Rapid Super™ chain. It's about 5 horsepower and makes lots of big chips. When I got it 20 years ago I thought I was quite the sawyer. After about the first hour or two my ass was thoroughly kicked.
