Don't know why, but just started thinking about the number of splits that I load in the stove during a winter. Here's my estimate. I typically load 9-10 splits or rounds in the stove during cold months (Dec, Jan, Feb.) at typically 3 loads per day. So, to be conservative let's say 27 pieces/day X 90 days = 2430. IN November and March, I can often get away with two loads per day, sometime less, sometime more - so I'll go with 18 pieces X 60 days = 1080. October and April, often one load per day, sometimes more, so I'll stick with 9 pieces X 60 days = 540. This adds to 4050 pieces for the season. Of course, sometime I don't need to burn in October or April, but, some frigid days have me loading four times instead of three, so I bet this is reasonably close. Sounds like a lot of pieces of wood! Funny how it just doesn't seem like so much as you get into the burning routine. Cheers!
