    That's funny.

    I'm sure I'll have similar things happening when we run out of the delivered, still on the pallet pellets.

    I do have this problem with wood stacking. I've had so many splits come down on my feet, and occasionally an entire tower tumble down once I've stacked it...so annoying. Nothing like going to the other side of the fence to retrieve the errant firewood splits...

    Unfortunately, this was only back in September.....Those were Platinum Fires too.
    Great pellets...Colorado Beetle Kill. Hot and clean and those restacked and sold for $175/ton picked up. Still crying from this one.

    I learned to stack pellets as a teenager, except they were thousands of Boston Sunday Globe that I had just stuffed the ad flyers into. You want to see a blowout when those things shifted; they were still loose 10 packs; stacked as high as we could get them; you made sure they were straight and square after cleaning up that mess a few times.

    Funny, after the bad slides, some people got 3 of the same ads and some got none of that ad ;em

    NOTE: For all you youngsters, The Boston Sunday Globe is a NEWSPAPER. These were here before laptops, smart phones, tablets and I-pads; were made out of paper and told us stories of what was happening in the world.
