That was December 15th of 2006. I remember it, well mostly because we are still dealing with it but I blogged about it back then. That storm took out both our cars and the fence as well as my green house and most of our garbage cans. I remember my Dad got the day off since he could not get out of the driveway.
Insurance covered Dave's car but not my 88 Jimmy nor the fence. We have been working ever since on getting that fence replaced. It has never been a priority until we got Jackie. He wants to be out there so bad.
We finally got the back gate posts set in concrete and got fence on the front gate.
We still have to figure out why the gate opener does not work and I have one more section in back to get up. We would have finished it yesterday but the whole house water filter decided it needed to be changed as it started leaking all over the garage. So, we had to stop what we were doing and take care of that. Then it started pouring down rain. We had to take a nap then. I guess it wasn't such a good idea to be working on the 110 out there while it was raining anyway.
I also spent a fair amount of time this weekend pulling Stinging nettles.
It is amazing that we had months of freezing rain and snow and we get two minutes of sun and they pop up all over the place. They are nasty.
We made a great haul at the native plant sale.
We got 5 Paper Burch trees, 5 Indian plum, 10 Nootka Rose, 5 Pacific Dogwood, 15Doug firs, 6 black huckleberry, 5 Oregon grape, 6 Salal and one Gary Oak all for about $1 each. We have planted most of it but we still need to clear some blackberry to plant the fir trees. That will be next weekend as we are in for another week of rain it seems.
