    Looks like I can stretch a day of splitting and stacking out if these piles.

    Looks like the weather is going to cooperate. High of 45 and low of 27. Sunny! Finally.

    It was not my typical day. I am volunteering to run sound for a big Easter production in our area and last night was final walk through. But loading an unloading wood, loading and unloading sound equipment, plus working a 8 hour day work day, and 5 hour rehearsal. And an hour drive to and from work. Needless to say my tail end is dragging today.

    Nice work...you can rest and take it easy in the middle of next winter when you are sitting pretty (and warm) in front of your fire knowing you are ahead on the wood front. ;)

    Yes it is nice looking at those stacks and knowing I am so far ahead. Although, I might not be as far ahead as I think I am. I am the mother in laws firewood supplier now. I spoiled her this year with real seasoned wood. But I have access to their hundreds of acres of hardwood bottoms. On another note, my aunt just texted and said a tree service just pruned a few big limbs and took down a tree at her place today and I can get what I want.

    My aunt said there is already somebody trying to get in on her wood that is down. There is a couple down the road that have an outdoor wood boiler, and they are out of wood and looking for some to burn this year. I saw his "stacks" in the fall and thought to myself, he does not have enough.

    I might leave them some if the bigger limbs. We kind of shared a scrounge last spring, but I came out of the deal better with over a cord of pecan and 2 cords of pin oak.
