    **********************************************
    Install a motion sensor with a light and a 110 volt alarm, horn or klaxon. Anyone comes near the wood pile & you get lights and noise, just dont forget to install an off/on switch inside the house, so that you can get your wood, too and reset it at 3am when the neighborhood cat pays a visit.

    The sensitivity and duration of the motion sensor should be adjustable, because you would probably want the noise to stop after 1 minute & wouldn't want passing cars to set it off.

    just need to say this: Would you have a problem with your neighbor going into your bank account and just taking a little bit???


    we heat with wood for the sole factor of saving money. we save an averate of $4000 a year, so if someone stole my 8 cords of wood, that would be like them stealing $4000 from me, and i would NOT take that lightly.

    Would you murder someone for stealing just a little bit out of your bank account or would you call the police?

    Yes,t hese poeple are stealing from you...or trying to. But shooting at them or setting your dog on them is only going to get YOU arrested.

    how much wood is that, anyway? I'm a bad judge anyway, but trying to figure out from a picture is even harder. 20cords? maybe 25?

    I guess I was using my own pile to compare, and I counted like 8 or 9 rows there thinking each one looks like one of my rows. I'm wrong, because my pile is a couple of rows deep and I think I figured about 2.5 cords. Using that, then I guess I would say he's got about 4 times what i got. So yeah, 10 cords should be pretty close.
