I stack all of my wood on an asphalt driveway (much lower volume than the rest of you, and a big driveway). And spread out pieces that need help. It's all on top of pressure treated 4x4s. The spread out stuff dries very fast.
In November I bring the pieces I'll burn the next three weeks and lean them individually against the stone siding in the sun, under the soffit. That works well too. I split kindling in December and cross stack it in the sun under the soffit. That's good for faster seasoning. I put it in the driveway stacks in March, and it's ready next November.
stack the wood... the asphalt under the wood is not heating, rain will wipe away and gain your getting.. you could do a quick kiln to get it down, do it tomorrow with clear plastic it may be able to burn if you get on itI just came into about 1/2 cord of mix Cedar/Maple. I split it pretty fine and laid it out on my asphalt driveway. Any chance this will be dry enough to burn this winter (Nov-ish)?
I dont really have storage to keep it another year, so hoping I can get it down below 20%.

We've always had very nice summers in WA but we had some record hot days this year. Yes, it is dependably sunny for most of the summer here. Pretty dry compared to you inland folks and very comfortable. Don't tell anyone though, we're trying to keep them out! Oh and our heating season starts next month for 9 months. During that 9 month stretch it is grey, dark, drizzly, muddy, and pretty awful.
