    I'd suggest slacking off a bit until cool or cold weather then get to cutting so you don't get behind! ;)

    Alas, I buy the log load. Last winter was so mild I processed a truckload. This winter, I don't think so. :)

    I don't want to bring on any increased scrutiny on the home front.

    Unless he uses 15 cord a year, I think he might be ok.;lol
    Well, relatively speaking.

    Believe me, if I had a nickel for every "eye roll" my SO has given me in regards to firewood I would be a very rich man!

    You make up for your shortage in firewood in your fantastic OCD perfectly organized stacks! I'd probably give up 10 cord to have stacks that perfect!

    And 15 cords of wood is by far NOWHERE NEAR A SHORTAGE.........just for the record. I think your good to go for three years easily, esp. with all the pellets you have on standby!

    I almost slept on the couch on Saturday night......she's PI$$ED about all the tree jobs I have lined up (see my updated sig.). I had to cut some jobs loose and reschedule a lot of the bigger jobs for late October/November so I could get our living room / fireplace install finished for this coming Thanksgiving. She means business! Remember fellas, if Mum ain't happy, NOBODY'S HAPPY!

    It's not OCD , it's something worse . I don't have a name for it . But it starts out like this ....... I like heating with wood ,so I think I'll buy a saw . Wow, if I buy a bigger saw , I can cut more wood . Okay, I bought a bigger saw ,so I have to get more wood to justify the saw purchase . Darn , a tri axle is one heck of a lot of wood ,maybe I need a second saw . while I'm thinking about this the old splitter isn't keeping up ......

    Whatever you do , don't go looking for other firewood related forums ..... There are some that even plant the seed of modding a saw to get more performance . Pure evil will result if you venture there . Trust me it's a slippery slope . Right now I'm trying to brag up the new 550 xp to the wife so that I can mod her 346 OE . I feel so ashamed .;-)
