    Well last year was terrible for wood drying in New England, so far this year doesn’t look promising either! I’m about ready to put a dehumidifier in my boiler barn/ wood shed.

    Yes, this isn't good for wood.

    I cut a big 3-stem maple windfall mostly up back in the woods late last fall. Didn't get the top fully cut up, or any of it split, before winter set in. Been trying to get back there to finish that up before it rots. Was going to run back last evening - but the rain hit yet again. Supposed to get 2-3" of the stuff today.

    I got back to my windfall on Saturday with my splitter. Took me a while to find it again, the greenery was like a jungle back there - I guess all this water is good for growing stuff with leaves on it.

    The rounds I left just laying there when I cut them up were still solid, so far, so that was good. Gotta get back there once or twice more to finish the cutting & splitting.
