    I'm sitting at 22 1/4 cord left as of last evening after hauling a heap into the basement......started off with 25. Been fairly mild again this year overall (so far), might end up sitting pretty nice if the trend continues all winter......

    I think we've only gone through about half a cord so far. We've got plenty left (scrounged big time last year), but as far as seasoned for a year stuff, we've probably got a good 2 cords ready. A lot of what we put up last spring and summer was standing dead beetle kill pine, so we probably could use some if we needed to. What we've got ready to go is mostly ash, maple and box elder with a little pine mixed in from our first scrounges and some we bought last year and just stacked.

    I'm down to about 16-18 cord. Burned quite a bit this year even though it has been mild. New baby in the house this year.

    I'll probably burn about 7 cord total this year leaving me with about 15.

    Keep in mind, Gerry, my goal was to be able to get 3-4 years ahead......

    I m hoping to be 5-6 years ahead this time next year! ;)

    I've burned over 2 cords, as my lopi freedom eats the wood:(. Have enough at present to last into 2015 and hopefully through 2015 by summer.

    That wood will rot or be too dry to put out any heat in 6 years. :p

    I'm burning faster than I'm cutting...but too much other stuff to do right now. I'll kick it into high gear this spring and try to get back north of 20 cord again.

    Ive burned around 2 cord so far, Have another 5 ready for this year if needed. With my last splitting done this past week I should be at 14-15 cord. So will be ready for the next few cold spells. All thanks to the guys here for the motivation to get ahead. Only problem I have is lots of trees on the list to be taken down but not necessarily needed, O well feed the addiction:)

    I have burned 1 1/3 cords plus a bunch of shorties and uglies that I had laying around guessing I will end up using a little more than 3 cords. I have 6 cords of ash ready to burn and about 8 cords of oak that most of it has been CSS for over a year might burn a little of the oak next year if its ready. Some of it I checked this fall was sitting at 25% yet.

    I've gone through just over a cord so far. Shoulder season stuff and what was left over from last years pile.
    In a few days I'll break in to the pile of Mulberry, Red Oak and Red Elm that is meant for this year. We are burning more than ever this year as my wife is home all day with the baby, but I figure I'll still end the year ahead of projected due to last years warm winter.
    On hand I now have about 7.5 cord stacked, another 1.5'ish cord split waiting to be stacked, a few rounds to split and one smallish tree to cut-up. I should be good through the 2015/16 season, but just typing that out has me feeling the need to scrounge some more! Better finish stacking what I have on hand first though.

    As of last Saturday we have about 3 cords seasoned ready to be cooked and about 1.5 that will be ready for next year. I plan to start my gathering process again in the next few weekends to replace the 1 cord we have burnt so far.

    We have plenty. Several years worth. So far this season we have not burned a cord yet.

    Understatement "few years" that's like Dave in Alaska saying it warmed up to 15 degrees

    Ive burned about 1.5 cords, Ive dug into the locust and oak now that its colder but if it warms up Im going back to the maple and odds and ends and saving the oak for next year, another year seasoned can only make it better.

    I have about 3 cords left. Been through 2 already. I've been burning 24/7 since October though.

    It's also currently 5F outside so you go through a decent amount of wood. My house is very well insulated so the colder temps just mean I'm not opening a window in the evening anymore.

    Yikes, I'm down to under 12 cords, but almost two are stacked up at my sister's house.

    I had to bust into a stack that I hadn't planned on, but it's ash and cherry stacked up last fall. It'll be better than the oak that has only been through two summers.

    I think. I'm starting to get a little confused. I think I'm gonna have to label my stacks and start inventorying everything.

    Gone through 2-2.5 cords so far. Got another 4 inside the basement ready to go. So far it's been a typical winter. I usually go through 4 cords by mid January. 8 for the season. Tonight it's expected to go below zero. Got the boiler at 160 and fired up the wood stove too!

    I've burned a little over 1 full cord and am into the 2nd. I've got ~another 13 left which is about 3-4yrs worth for me.

    I'd say I've burned around 3/4 of a cord. Been burning a lot the past couple weeks.
