The three-wheeled tractor
A pretty substantial snowstorm blew through Wednesday and much of Thursday, giving us another foot or so on the ground. It was tough to move, heavy stuff with some ice built-in. Then the wheel fell off the tractor!
I guess the cotter pin must have fallen out. I expect we'll find the pin in the spring. I jacked it up, refitted the wheel, and put a bolt in the hole with two lock nuts. Should hold her.
A hungry chickadee was pecking at our bedroom window, seemingly trying to get at a fly buzzing around on the inside. Might be time to check the feeder to make sure that we have sunflower seeds!
I expect I would need my snowshoes to reach that feeder.
