Last month I moved the wood from where I had it very easy to get to another location also easy to get to though might make the zoning cops a bit ticked off. Went from an endless 30+% moisture to 10% outside and splitting a random piece is 18% inside in a month. So I guess it is like buying a house location location location screw the zoning guy he will not be here to help clean the chimney in January! It actually went from very light tan to brown in a month with end grain showing deep checks it might be a very warm winter here burning this no matter what outside. I also scored a couple of cords of mixed oak maple hickory ash cut and split over 1 1/2 years ago so well over 2 years when I actually need it. Told the seller will check a random piece before duping for moisture before dumping and another after before getting paid and he has no worries being under 20% at any point in time so a hoorah if the case. It sucks buying wood but is usable wood it is a bunch less that fuel oil $500 a year to be warm for living in a little village with no place to cut and split myself is still a good deal in my eyes. That delivery will get me to 4+ cords and while not a hoarder certainly fixed for next year and a good part of the year after.
