    This summer, and now moving into fall has been so wet that it looks like wood will never season. Just when we think the humidity levels drop, they pick up the next day. I think for every sunnny and dry day we get three that either are overcast or raining. NY is in a pattern I haven't seen in decades. Dont know how dry my wood is going to be by winter. The lowest I've had was 18% on a couple splits. The rest was around 25%. May have to do kiln dried if it stays this way.
