« Part 32: That brown truck came again Part 33 of Shop stuff series Part 34: The final episode »

That is just about the only thing I have been dealing with for the last week. I have had the snowblower out every day and today it is still snowing. Just doing our driveway and the paths can tucker a guy out. I do a bit extra so Lil’ Lee has a place to run around and guard the place against marauding squirrels. She is always curious about what they are up to.

The lady across the street from me had a bit of a time with her snow blower, so I did her driveway once for her. The neighbour behind me backed out of his driveway and got his truck stuck as soon as he got on the road, so a few of us got him dug back into his driveway. Also, another neighbour is recovering from heart surgery, so there is no way he can do his, so I go over and clear his driveway and deck. I have a new pass time I guess. One that I really didn’t want. At least not to this extent. I move snow, and the rest of the time is recovery….lol.

I do have footage to edit. I will have to get around to editing that soon. The last part of the essential oil cabinet has to be made. I want to get more comfortable with this new video editing software first. I have a few other bits too, but not much. I have not had much in the way of shop time due to the weather. I did get a bit more ceiling insulated, and got some footage of that. It will be coming out eventually.

I have been watching Lightworks tutorial videos and trying to get comfortable with it. I figured it was about time I put something up, so I went and shot this today and put it together. More as an exercise as anything else. This is one powerful program and will do more than I will ever need. It is also pretty complex, so I will play some more with it and get some more video together as I go.

So, what was I up to today?

Man I am glad I don’t live in the snow anymore. I hate that white crap. Now I live on the Oregon coast and you don’t have to shovel rain! The pup seems happy about it. Well done on the video, I think you have the program figured out well.

Thank you Brian. It is not just the snow this year, it is the amount of ground it is on that I have to deal with. But what are you going to do when a neighbour needs help? Help, of course! I have a ways to go to get comfortable with Lightworks, but like anything, practice, practice, practice!
