    I've been going to grab this but never did, this Sunday (if the weather is good) it's coming down along with the other dead one just west of it.

    Zap you are the man...you cut enough wood to start your own lumber yard. You have got to get this addiction under control...;)

    Zap, looks like you'll have some cooler weather to deal with Sunday. Supposed to have a cool-down here after that front pushes through on Friday night/Saturday morning.....

    I'm not sure maple man.
    S&F, not a bad addiction to have.
    Hearth.com Members, we just pushed in two loads of of white pine for the colder weather coming in.
    Cass, it can make some nice firewood.
    Sav, I'll check it out before cutting.

    Looks like the area with the dead standing will be too wet so it's the beech on the hill for Sunday.

    I have had the stove lit a few times, but starting tonight, I think I'll be keeping it going a bit into tomorrow. Heavy cold rains expected, low 50's highs tomorrow, down to mid 30's next couple nights. Sucks it will be raining. I need to catch up on splitting to make room for a couple truck loads of oak I'm working on, hopefully next weekend. Be well

    What a great day to work in the woods, one load of beech off the hill, should be ready for next year if we want. I cleared some dead wood off the ground so I could get closer to the beech, ended up rolling them down in a different direction which was easier.

    WellSeasoned, I don't think it hit 50 which made it perfect. They are calling for rain, maybe some snow tonight.

    Thanks Smokin, I'll never complain. I want to grab this dead standing before rifle season starts (it's in an area I won't work during hunting season.)
