Thanks Greg. Fascinating and horrifying story.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

Sitting on the couch watching TV tonight and looked over and see these guys staring at me.
My mom made these probably around 30 years ago and gave them to my honey and I as a Christmas gift back then. She passed around 17 years ago. We have a bunch of neat stuff she made over the years. I’m surprised these guys have their noses and arms still hoho!

That's neat. They are in great shape. The homemade decorations are the best. We made them a lot when I was a kid. They are the ones that mean the most over time

Wow, wasn't even cluing into the fact that it was the anniversary. Even today it's an unimaginable tragedy and even more so because it was so highly preventable. Greg, my best to you and your family as well in this season.

Very cool that Boston's official Christmas tree is sent there every year in appreciation. I also saw that Massachusetts was a major donor of funds for reconstruction. For anyone interested, here is the Wikipedia link:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halifax_Explosion

There are many interesting and tragic facts. Here are a couple that stood out to me - spoiler alert -

The last victim was recovered in the summer of 1919 - two and a half years after the explosion.

Two US ships at sea saw the debris cloud from the explosion and came to Halifax to help in the rescue and medical treatment efforts.

The explosion expelled so much water that it exposed the bottom of the harbor. The water flowing into the void created a 60 ft tall wave. The wave was responsible for much of the destruction and wiped out the remainder of an Indian tribe which had a settlement in a nearby cove.

The Halifax Relief Commission was in operation until 1976, providing care for victims and pensions for survivors.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

Random barn timber pictures I took. I took them to get help identifying the species. The sun was just right at the end of the day so not only a help for identification but kind of artistic looking

When were you lurking around my barn
Depends on where the barn is located as to wood species . My barn is American Chestnut White oak and black locust . The locust is primarily at the ground contacts.

I believe the slabs in the rafters to be either Chestnut or oak need to get them down . The neighbor said they were there when he was a kid and hes in his late 70s

Two middle pics are upside down cant get them to flip

I took these on an ATV riding trip. Coal mines in West Virginia. Apparently, they bored horizontally into the vein.

They sure are blueprint consistent. Was that all of them or how many in a row?

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

Those honeycomb holes were everywhere.

Somone told me an auger brought the coal out and in some case's they had conveyors that brought it off the mountain. The roads are rough now, but, looked to have been well maintained at one time. I suspect there was a lot of truck traffic.

Sounds like it was quite an operation.

Hey Mark, after I came out of your barn, I loaded up some locust
I wouldn't even have notice . I'm working on 24/25 winter wood now . Friend had 2 large standing dead white oaks come down alone his tree line . Also a large Hickory shaped about 10 feet up. So I'll be getting that next week . He wanted me to drop a huge white oak again standing dead but it's to close to his garage and power lines. Told him he needs to get a tree guy to do it . Problem is they are super busy now after the past few wind storms we've had .

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

sadly not much chance of saving this old 1800's barn but I might try some homemade shoring and restoration when I retire

dad and I lofted over two thousand bales in that barn only 35 years ago when we were feeding cattle out of it

back then stored a couple of tractors and the hay trailer in there too

mortise and tenon joints just sitting on limestone blocks, nothing in or fastened to the ground

I remember as a little kid my dad cleaning out the tack room and found a box of old wet dynamite

thankfully the local quarry made arrangements with him to demo it for us

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

I'm no longer ahead and always looking and listening. Seems I was running into the wood for the taking like you are all the time, but it's been a while. I mostly scavenge off the side of the road, fallen or dropped. Lots of competition there these days.

This house was along Main St in Mt. Airy where I live, the Martin place. I knew it sold and saw it being prepped for raising, unfortunately. So, on the day I saw all the dust ahead I knew what was up. I found it ironic there is this huge billowing dust cloud from a pre-75 house drifting through town when I have regs up the wazoo for lead dust control so stringent with ridiculously high fines per violation. I think it begins on disturbing any area of wall over 32 sq' (4' x 8'). Ah, whatever.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

Old home tear downs are sad. Some see it as progress while ridding the town of just an eyesore. I see it as the removal of someone's many memories.
