It almost killed me for real!
all of it fell all at once.damn!!!
Too much snow piled up on the branches I guess? I gave Toosk some damn donuts to shut him up,lol
Good for you, at least you made it out alive. Years ago I spent awhile logging way up in Northern California. Every now and then a leftover branch would come crashing down without any warning. We called 'em widowmakers. They are no joke!
Did my share of tree work when I was young and stupid, those widowmakers are serious business.
I have a friend at work that was in a tree after the ice storm in 04 here in OH. branch broke under him he ended up having 3 vertabreas fused and screwed togather in his lower back.
Ouch, that really sucks. The tv show about loggers still doesn't show how dangerous it is. I was working at a chipper when I first started, and was throwing bush in when I didn't see a branch as it was flying by at 40mph. The butt end hit my bicep square and smashed the living shit out of it. I have seen a couple guys slide down palm trees as well when their hooks slipped out. Luckily nothing serious. Tree work is rough.
3 years ago. one barber chaired and went crazy! scary shit!
I've seen a tree..LOL
Did you see stars after seeing that tree?lol
Figures the one tree I get to see falls on my dumb ass...
We had a kid got his leg chewed up by a Stihl that kicked on him, he was kinda small to be using that saw anyways. It was a mess and he went into shock pretty quick. Getting him up out of the treelines was a bitch. Besides that it was mostly back injuries and falls. You are right though, logging is for young bucks or crusty old bastards. Brutal work. I left it to do pipefitting and always laughed at the kids who complained about how hard we worked on construction. After fucking around in the woods for a few months like that almost anything seemed like easy work to me!
You got that right. I played a mean joke on the foreman one day. I was tuning and sharpening all the small saws. I saw the foreman standing there just talking and talking and talking. So, because I didn't like him much anyway, I took the chain off of a saw, went up behind the foreman, started the saw rev'd it up and touched his crotch with the chainless bar. You should have seen him hover!
Holy jeez you must have had a set of balls to pull a stunt like that! With the "kindly old gentlemen" I had the fortune of working with I woulda been spitting out a few teeth after trying one like that! LMAO!
He was the owners nephew or something and dumb as a stump (get it) Never talked to me after that, I think he was scared of me!
Sounds like it.

Have a good New Year yourself
