    When you've read this whole thread, and are up past your bed time, and still haven't learned anything new.

    If you use your "good" miter saw to cut up your kindling!

    If you save paper cups from the bathroom all year to use as fire starters!

    (I'm guilty on both counts.)

    and then you seven year old asks if it is ok to start a fire…and then rakes 20 hour old coals and yelps with excitement when she finds hot coals and states its ready for a burn!"

    after adding some splits…she asks if she can stoke the fire and after ten minutes closes the door, opens the primary and says, "daddy, it will settle in 20 minutes or so and then we can slow it down".

    The snow isnt to deep yet so you might go get another cord cause you know there is some dry blow down near by! So what if the neighbours wonder why you spend so much time in your back yard playing with your wood!

    The snow is deep and you use a kiddie sled to move firewood out of pure determination to not give in to mother nature !

    When your definitions have new meanings, log on- add wood to the fire
    Download- getting wood off the truck
    Monitor-watching the stove
    Ram- the thing that splits the wood
    Hard drive- getting home in the winter
    Log off-don't add more wood

    When the deciding factor on whether to buy the lot next to your house is "the value of the wood on it" and your wife is ok with that

    When you consider NOT doing that insulation project because it will cut into your wood consumption

    When your wife asks where you are going to stack the pile of wood you just brought home, and you tell her you will make more room by cutting more trees

    When you eyeball the tree in your neighbors yard and secretly wish that when it falls it falls onto your property so your neighbor feels bad about it and gives you the whole tree.
