Site 35 still available as of 2:00 pm EST. We're going to stick with mooch-tenting so that someone with a trailer can take it.

When I got the message. there was a site, I quickly held it for a friend, let it go as they were about to book. Well, before they could lock it in it disappeared. Then later it was back so I booked it for our friends.
Strange.

Good morning Sandlapper(aka King Possum),

I stuck my head out of the hole in my nesting tree this morning and the world around me was white with ice. WHOOO let winter into our woods? Maybe our northern brothers are moving south and bring the weather with them.

I haven't been able to hunt possums for days with all the cold, snow, sleet and freezing rain. It has been hard trying to gather possum's for Gary's possum bog. I may have to fall back to road kill, but I will make sure is fresh.

John, do you know how to make sure it is fresh road kill? First you fly down the country road and when you see a road kill you stop and with a piece of chalk draw a circle around the roadkill. When you have flown five miles down the country road turn around and fly back up the road and stop and pick up every roadkill that does not have a chalk circle drawn around the animal. Then you know you have fresh roadkill.

John of course with this cold freezing temps we can pick up all road kill as a "Plan B" since it is all ready frozen and has not had time to spoil, take it home and put it in the ice cave(spring house).

Maybe Gary will have two pots of Possum bog. One pot for fresh RK and one pot for semi-fresh RK. John does that sound like a food resource food plan since we have a big crowd coming in just six weeks to Lake Wateree State Park?

Back to my warm nest..... more news later.

GIVE A HOOT.

Y'all are really getting hit hard!

It's all coming now so that weather will be good for the rally next month.

Stay warm, folks.

Hunkered In, Waiting it out

Yup, We got the white stuff/ice/sleet/slush stuff all over the place. Our Son, Jacob got called out for SC National Guard duty haven't heard much back yet but he is sitting in the Hummer in the opening shot of this CBS news clip.

Dangerous snow-covered roads prove deadly in South Carolina - Videos - CBS News

Feeding lots of birds today too. Almost got a Coon on the road the other day but he looked up in time to avoid being a side dish.

Air2 to the rescue

Our son Phillip is headed towards the low country of SC with a crew of local linemen , called in to help restore power. Tough job in tough circumstances. They may be gone up to a week. Please say a little prayer for them all to return safely.

Keep the fires burning. We've got about 6-8 inches here, still coming down like crazy.

Marie discovered her car does well in the snow. With several inches of snow covered by ice covered by snow covered by sleet and freezing rain, not so much. At least I was able to shovel the end of the driveway enough to get it out of the road.
Anybody that can't get an answer at the shop, we are closed at least today. Tomorrow is still up in the air.

what a day

so around 11:30 a tractor trailer arrived at my store with 5 pallets of product. After unloading the skids, the driver pulled into our back lot to turn around, and got stuck. 18 wheelers are pretty helpless on snow covered packed snow. We spent hours digging, prying and such to get him out. he was almost out and was just spinning. The trailer was empty, I was tired, so I offered to help. I then chained up my 09 Dodge Ram to the trailer, and with the extra traction, he was back on level, drivable pavement. Note to self, next time stay home in crazy weather, lol. john

Alumalina Map Update 2-13-2014

It has been a while since I've done an Alumalina map update and reading back over the thread I realize I'm somewhat confused. Therefore I've updated the map with what I perceive to be the current status. If there are corrections, please let me know.

Note I'm not sure who is in site #35.

Thank you for your help. The link to the map is below:

Not trying to confuse things - but Beetlebob and I are tent-camping together (have been for 30+ years).

Lots and lots of trees fell into I 95 from MM 150 to I 26 and I 26 to Summerville nothing but trunk stumps pointing into the road and cut limbs laying all over the place.
