A lot happening this week.  Passed the architectural process and their inspection. And I turned in the building permit application and all the docs.  Was at the village offices this morning getting a slash permit, which is for dumping all the limbs I have been taking to the dump (they turn them into mulch) and I passed the inspectors office and noticed he was reviewing our plans, so I took the opportunity to introduce myself and during the conversation, answered a few questions he had. Saw him later this afternoon and he said to he would sign them in the morning.  So! We'll have the basic permit.  With that in hand, I'll head to Santa Fe early next week and get what trade permits I can.  Now - if only the excavator would show up.  Was supposed to start Wed, then said Thursday or Friday, but stopping at at the new brewery this afternoon, I saw his equipment there putting in a new parking lot. I'll make sure to stop by in the morning and find out if I'm next in line.


Still taking down trees, and slash to the dump.  One tree today gave me a bit of a problem.  About 50' tall, I walked around it several times, trying to determine which way the lean was.  Got my major cuts in and went for the final, using a wedge to help keep the blade from possibly getting pinched.  BUT! it happened just the same.  The tree wanted to fall the opposite direction! So I have a monster tree with the cut trunk resting on my blade, only being held up by the hinge section on the other side.  The village inspector was planning on coming out to look at easements and I could just see disaster in the making with someone getting seriously hurt or worse.  I pulled the blade and chain from the saw and planned on going for a new blade.  I have a spare chain from the other day.

As I am blocking the drive to prevent someone from driving up, and leaving a message for the inspector, a stiff gust came in and as I hear a cracking sound, the tree falls exactly where I wanted it!  Now why it was unbalanced in a way I couldn't see, I'll never understand, but thankfully, the problem was solved and no one was hurt.

Earlier this morning, about 20 deer made a visit, as they munched on the ski slope grass within 50 yards of where I was working.  And we saw a flock of wild turkey on the mountain early in the week.  This place is a veritable zoo!

there are a couple of the turkeys we saw on Tuesday. Unlike most I have seen in other places, these were not spooked by us being so close.
