    It have been about 2 months since I cleaned it. Been burning wet wood for about a month now. We have been getting a lot of rain.

    That's pretty dark, which goes along with the wet wood. But the amount isn't too bad. I think your schedule is about right Stan

    yea that is not a disturbing amount to me. It also depends upon the chimney height but even if you have 13-15 feet that does not seem like much if that isfrom a 25ft chimney that is minimal.

    Does not look bad - you must be burning hot, even if wet. :)

    Are you making plans to get ahead now so you don't wind up with more unseasoned wood next year????

    Nothing worse than struggling with wet wood.

    I had good dry wood up until last month then had to start mixing it with wet wood not green wood. My son lift a load it the of his truck for a month in a feet of water. Now all I have is green wood, need to find some dry wood to get to the end of the burn seasoned. Got a cord of red oak for next year I hope. More on the way.
