@  carcajou : (25 April 2017 - 08:24 AM) Not sure but the trucks will keep going South regardless. In the short term it will be a benefit for the timber owners in the US but in the end the tarrifs will be refunded to Canada like the last 2 or three times. In the meantime everyone in the US pays more for lumber.
@  mlappin : (25 April 2017 - 07:47 AM) I might go plant some beans today. Dad was spraying some of the light ground yesterday and had dirty tires from the low spots, didn’t cut ruts but was very sticky yet. A lot of the low spots even on the sand around here have muck in em or a mix of muck and sand. Seen a few chisel plowing yesterday, just drive around the standing water, all looked to be too sticky yet to actually do a finishing pass.
@  Vol : (25 April 2017 - 07:04 AM) @vtlpluyr I am sending you a link on Trump and the ex-presidential office holders dreamer program. I am hoping Trump will do the same with obama....export him out of the country for being undocumented. :)
@  Shetland She... : (25 April 2017 - 06:45 AM) 46º and overcast here in srn NH. Today may see drizzle/rain with a high in low 50s.
@  vtlpluyr : (25 April 2017 - 06:44 AM) I was beside myself when I learned about the "dreamer" program for many Mexicans. Heck Canadians boating on the St-Lawrence in the Thousand Islands can't stop for ice cream on the US side without checking in with boarder people. If they do and get caught the boat gets taken, they are held, and probably cannot return for 24 months...
@  Uphayman : (25 April 2017 - 06:42 AM) Looks like the neighbors to the north, will be paying for the wall !
@  Vol : (25 April 2017 - 06:41 AM) :)
@  vtlpluyr : (25 April 2017 - 06:38 AM) @Vol My Grampie hated Canadian dairy system - it created royalty he said... Now he was what Americans would call a hardcore libertarian, but still he was right in many ways. Trump will be getting to that. Unfortunately the US tend to apply things more aggressively on Canada than on Mexico.
@  vtlpluyr : (25 April 2017 - 06:34 AM) My mother is a furniture maker (outdoor cedar furniture)... I think she still has a Facebook page - Ottawa Cedar Furniture. She used to bring in a guy for $40 an hour, him and his machine, and she said it was like 3000 or 4000 board feet in 6 hours if we were there to help him. Not worth buying a Woodmizer at that price.
@  Vol : (25 April 2017 - 06:32 AM) hmmmm....I guess he didn't care for the dairy do.
@  vtlpluyr : (25 April 2017 - 06:30 AM) President Trump's administration just announced a 25% tariff on Canadian lumber starting next week.
@  Vol : (25 April 2017 - 06:27 AM) love to have a woodmizer....
@  Uphayman : (25 April 2017 - 06:09 AM) Looks like the "woodmizer" was a pretty good investment. MAGA
@  deadmoose : (25 April 2017 - 02:20 AM) Whats the story on lumber pricing?
@  Bgriffin856 : (24 April 2017 - 11:28 PM) How much of a price jump carcajou?
@  carcajou : (24 April 2017 - 10:55 PM) If anyone needs lumber, best get it real soon before the price jumps.
@  endrow : (24 April 2017 - 08:42 PM) We had on and off showers all day but none of them were too persistent I don't think we got a tenth of an inch all totaled out of everything
@  somedevildawg : (24 April 2017 - 08:25 PM) Confederate Memorial Day today....brother against brother...must have been awful. Real heroes
@  PaMike : (24 April 2017 - 08:06 PM) Havent seen much of anyone plant here. Everyone is still messing around trying to get rye off...and the ground is saturated..
@  BWfarms : (24 April 2017 - 07:03 PM) I just moved cows to higher ground from some bottom land. Creek (would be considered a river by some standards) is at about 50% capacity. Just easier to prevent trouble with another day of rain.
