    Sorry for the loss. You have a new hobby coming at you. Push the button for the A/C. :(

    ;lolGood luck on your move, your "new" work, etc. Hope the best for ya. You can still have a stove, you just won't need it as much. And may I suggest one of those backyard chimney type things so you can burn outside and enjoy the flames even when you don't need the heat. Oh, or maybe a wood burning oven so you could use the excuse that you are going to make dinner! Yes. That is not bad. Pizza, bread, etc. etc. Have you seen some of them in the post on here?

    Too bad about all the labor spent and no personal enjoyment.

    Now your a "Damn Yankee" welcome to the club:)
    When you get settled in and decide if a stove is in the cards, there is a guy that sells them over in Bremen, GA out of a repurposed chicken house!!!!
    They pronounce it BREE-MEN, still haven't figured that out:confused:

    His name is Johnny, its worth the experience ~ 50mi west of the city

    I would quit my job before i gave up my wood. I almost quit the other day because work was potentially interfereing with a great scrounge. Luck was on my side though,I got to do both.

    Sad for sure. good luck in the new home. I'm not sure I'd be able to live in a place that doesn't have winter. I guess it gets cold down there too though and the good news is you'll probably onlt need a cord or two each year. It will be easy to get ahead.

    I live here in SC with a climate similar to atl, we get pretty much the same weather. Yes you still can use a stove here! maybe not as long. And if you have a house without insulation like me you will definitely need one as the electricity and or oil will kill you< but they say gas is cheap but I don't know its not available in the country here?

    I live 45 minutes south of Atlanta. You'll still be able to have a stove. It's 33 degrees right now. We had several days this week where the high was 45-55 degrees. Usually u only need a fire at night.

    You could definintely use a wood stove in Atlanta. There isn't a lot of actual cold weather, but enough that you can probably burn a couple of cords a year.

    That definitely is enough to make a grown man cry. However, you did it once and you'll no doubt do it again. Congratulations on the move and I hope it works out really well.

    Well hopefully the move is wanted and the new house and neighbor are good . . . I can completely understand the loss after having put in that much time and effort . . . but on the flip side it sounds like you made some money back on your labors and you're keeping someone warm this winter.

    Shoot man, I feel for ya. With all that wood, you should have taken it with you. Would have been worth it to hire a truck to haul it. If we ever move, ALL my wood is going too.
    Of course it helps that my brother just bought a semi tractor.;)

    Good side;
    Tax free money ;)
    Proves fire wood is money , not a total loss of all that work
    Prime time to sell fire wood is now.

    Not that you need it, but, Good Luck
    (anyone with 15 cords of hand split fire wood CSS, knows how to work hard & I'm sure you'll be just fine)

    Dude... I don't know if I could have parted with that. I'm cringing just thinking of having to leave my wood pile behind, and it's not nearly as nice as that (less volume, and not nearly as much split).
