I refuse to be a girly man and buy a fake tree, or get one at the local grocery store. This is how us manly men do it in Oregon! The downside to this....is that the tree farm I cut this tree at is on my route, and tomorrow I will be screwed. There is 6" of snow up there and its going to freeze tonight. 16 stops per hour? Not gonna happen with chains on. And we are supposed to have record cold temps all week, so it wont be melting any time soon.
