Does wood season quicker in winter, since it’s dry? Weird...

    OH ... didn't realized you were the OP. OK then someone cover me I going in for another recon of the OP.


    EDIT OK I'm back...guess back in the day I quit reading after the 2nd page...got too complicated. No...not that's is a bad thing, it's me. My fault.

    Water freezing inside the wood expands the cells and allows the moisture to escape more quickly.
    ^probably why I can only hand split winter wood with my torn rotator cuff...wouldn't try that in the summer. Ruin my golf game for weeks...

    No, I'm telling you that no matter how low the dewpoint goes, it won't dry much at 78% RH. I'll bet the RH dropped considerably during the hottest part of the day today, though. However, I didn't check it so I don't know.

    Hey, can I join you guys for the beer?
