Dateline: 17 October 2015
Well it took me 8 days, working as I had the time and energy, to get that truck load of logs cut up and stacked....
I'm sure it amounts to 30 face cords, which will last two winters. I have it stacked on pallets, on the as-yet-unfinished side of my house (it's only been that way for 30 years)...
I'll cover the top of the wood with some inexpensive tarps next week. As mentioned in my previous post, the logs are green and need to season. So, for this year's firewood, I've ordered 7 face cords of seasoned and split wood. It was pricey at $70 a cord, delivered. That will be here next week.
Those seven cords, added to what wood we have left from last winter, and the handful of dead elms I plan to cut this next week, should get us through this winter. After I get it all stacked under cover, my firewood crisis will be resolved. And I'll get back to blogging. And I'm looking forward to it.
