I love the warm/hot weather as well, but I also enjoy not feeding the beast at 5:00 AM and 5:00 PM every day. The best thing about summer to me is being able to work on projects/wood cutting after getting home from work. When it gets dark at 5:30 PM in the late fall and winter, the only time I have to work on wood is on the weekends. I do plan on having all the wood cut and split by burning season this year and only worry about hauling enough wood next to my stove in the short evening hours or weekends.I love the freedom and warm days of summer, and how much time I get to work on my wood piles. But when doing so I can't help but want it to be chilly enough to start using it.
It does seam weird, but I'm weird so its kinda normal. All of my wood sits in sheds and stacked nicely. It really does look pretty.. I look at the different spices, love the cherry. There just something about it that makes it appealing.It sounds weird but I admit to doing the same.
Yeah my stacks aren’t real nice as I don’t measure my bucks so I get different length rounds. If I ever get another grapple load I’ll measure my cuts though. Right now I’m cutting up some trees the power company took down across the street and it’s enough to just get it cut and into the ATV trailer. My junk looks like this. BTW, each rack holds a little more than two face cord of wood.I can't really say I sit and admire my pretty stacks. Other than one shed where I can stack about 3 cords, my wood is just in piles since the area I put it is so sloped. It goes pretty quick once I get to burning it, so the piles just get pitched down the hill a bit and stacked somewhat in a small covered shed and next to it. I have plenty of space, so no real advantage to stacking. I do admire some of the neatly stacked all the same size wood stacks I see others post though. Maybe someday

I once cut I to a hollow maple log from a pile of wood that a logger had given me since it wasn’t enough to put on a truck and there was a wasp nest in it. Man I got stung all over even in my shoes. They were PO’d lol, I’ll never forget it.A few days ago I moved in the years supply into the garage and leanto. 4-5cord. In the process, I noticed a few of those little yellow jacket bees. Was able to get all I needed, all the while gingerly taking pcs off the top until just a few were left. Even got stung a few times, but nothing to really worry about. Bees are my friends. Last night decided to kick over the remaining dozen pcs, just because, and to get the hornets to disperse a little. Woho ho ho, hah hah hah, run like hell, just uncovered a basket ball size nest of a 10thousand of the nasty things. Lucky I didn't have a face in there grabbing a few splits.
I've read about how their underground nests can get huge, and how road crews grading into them can get nailed pretty good. Hearing and seeing the ground boil really brings the
