This is my first winter with a woodburning stove (Jotul f400) and I already made my first mistake by running out of firewood. I only purchased 1 cord thinking I would just be burning on the weekends, but I ended up burning 5 sometimes 7 days straight. My question is, given that fuel costs have dropped dramatically since the spring, should I expect the price of a cord a firewood to be much cheaper now? I originally paid $200, New Jersey, back in the spring. My other question is, now that its winter, is it ok to store the wood on pallets with a cover? Or should I attempt to store it in a plastic shed that I have in my yard, to avoid rain/snow? Any help is appreciated.
