    I've only got about 1/10 of a Zap-sized stack, but the journey of a thousand miles... :lol:

    No I don't burn splits this big. :lol: I just knocked 'em down to a size I could pick up. I split them down smaller as the 90* heat caught up with me. Good day for drying wood, though. The humidity was low...under 50%. :lol:
    Some of the rounds on the right end might be ready this fall. I'll see for sure when I split them, but they felt lighter.

    When I stack this Black Oak with my previous work it'll be about two cords, which should be enough to cover the 2012 season. I'll probably add a little more, just to be sure; We've been keeping it a bit warmer in the house lately, and have gotten used to that. This finishes the two-tree Black Oak score that the power company was kind enough to drop about 100' from where I'm stacking it. :coolsmile:

    Thanks. They look pretty good from that angle, but there might be a reason I didn't shoot the pic lengthwise down the stack, like some guys do. :lol:

    Nice pics and big stacks! Did you know that firewood stacks are often used by pro photographers as back drops for portraits? My wife rolled her eyes when we had one here for yearbook pics lol.. Of course you know I was in my glory to hear that! :)

    [quote author="Woody Stover" date="1306756945"]I've only got about 1/10 of a Zap-sized stack, but the journey of a thousand miles... :lol:

    We have been receiving wind gust up to 50 miles per hour with certain towns and villages losing power, just hope everyone is safe.

    The old GM plant in Massena has a grass fire going on in this wind (not sure what caused it yet) looks like the next trip through the woods will include some trail cleanup and hopefully some good firewood.


    This is the outage map from our area.
