    My rant for the day!

    My rant for the day!
    Such a perfect Fall Morning! Turning leaves in the morning sunshine, crisp cool air really wakes you up and energizes your day. All this is ruined by the whine and buzz of those damn logging operations that seen to intent on getting all the Old Growth in the state. I know landowners have the right to sell their timber but what a mess. That Old Growth does not come back when they plant pine in it's place. Looks like many of the farmers are selling their timber then cutting up the land to sell for building lots or developments. Really sad!!!

    Sorry to hear.452 I can easily see how a haunting sound like that would suck the life right out of a beautiful day! I hope your day gets better.

    I prescribe several hours of "range time" 1X per day, for the next 30 days . . . should help a little.

    What makes it so bad is it is all day, 5 or 6 days a week and this has been going on for the last few years. I love to walk out into the wood and sit down with a Grand-son and a 22 a collect a few squirrels this time of year but you can't hear yourself think with all that noise from the saws and diesel equipment.

    Well, it's crop dusters and cotton strippers making noise around here continually. But it'll only last a few weeks. They stir up a lot of fine dust, as well as the area cotton gins. But it's only the sounds, sights, and smells, of money!

    I see this going on all over North Carolina. It's a shame people are stripping away the beauty
    and disturbing the tranquility of our home state to make a little money without considering the
    consequences. At least you still live in Caswell County, where there is still quite a bit of timber
    standing. Wake County is on the way to becoming an asphalt and concrete jungle. A little more
    peace and quiet and a little less noise and traffic would be much appreciated these days where
    I live.

    Don't blame you for ranting, all that noise would be disturbing.

    I share your sentiment. How long do you think this tree took to grow?

    As a rant I give it a .
    Not nearly enough emotion, no bold capital letters. The font was way too small.
    I counted only 4 exclamation points in the entire post.
    No hidden profanity using character symbols.................nothing.
    Wow.
    I suggest you get some lessons under your belt before your next rant.
    I gave you a two only because I felt kind of sorry for you...........otherwise.................
