    I'm back. I had some medical problems resulting in recent surgeries, so I got distracted over the summer. But I'm getting back into the groove.

    I didn't cut any wood all summer, but still have a pretty decent pile out back. Part of it is 3 cords that came from a big ash the power company cut down in my front yard last winter.

    Glad to see you're back but sorry to hear about the reason for your absence. Read your Dad's book this summer and learned a lot!

    I hope the judging is based on square footage of property! I live in NYC on 60/80 and have about 2 cords!

    allhands,
    How did the tornados treat you? Were they anywhere near you? Can you score some wood from the damage?

    I won some "free" wood working stuff once.
    Cost me $86 to ship it to Alaska.

    What does a wood boiler do. Replace my hot water heater?
    Free shipping & installation come with it?

    The date of that contest was over a year ago. See the "boiler room" forum- it will replace or tie into your existing boiler. If I could afford one- I'd do it in a second.

    The house is ok! There are trees down everywhere! Some roads are still closed! I started a post called NYC storm. There are some videos there! Douglaston was spared this time! Flushing, Whitestone, Bayside was hit hard! Too bad the Parks dept is chipping all the wood that people don't scrounge!

    Great photo, but that's only half a bikini.
