Well, it happened again. I've been out moving wood for many days, and noticed one of the posts I put in the ground back in '08. Spruce, that I split down the middle. The stack I had moved was pushing opposite what remains, so now that support is gone and the post gave it up. Couldn't handle the stress. I had hoped it would hold until I could get to it, but ....well, it didn't. Not a big deal really, since that wood is slated for consumption this winter. I've just been wondering if I could get another year out of them. There were 2 left of 4. I'd say 5 years in the ground is pretty good.
