Making some progress. The first picture was how it looked a couple weeks ago. Since then I now have eight cords in the shed (a bit less now since I have already been burning) and just shy of two more stacked. I'm estimating there is at least two more cord left to be split and stacked (possibly more) so hopefully we won't have major snow for a little bit longer. Well shy of the 15-20 cord I hoped to have before winter but that's life. Still better than where I was this time last year. If the weather holds off, I'll keep trying to add to the stash.
Great work @EODMSgt , we received about three inches of snow with most of it coming earlier today.

Gotta love the difference one day makes. Time to start splitting and stacking in the snow.

If I have to break out the "Tubbs Wilderness snowshoes" to stack wood, that's where I draw the line.. ;)

23df this morning here, we got a tiny bit of snow on the coast. I actually started at a new snow removal job and I salted several areas early yesterday morning. If this Keeps up I'm just going to have to call it quits this year for exterior improvements unfortunately.

We hit 13.4 degrees for a low overnight, I see some single digit lows coming this way in the forecast next week.
When is the snow supposed to start up by you? The wife is gonna be up that way until Sunday evening. Hoping she doesn't have to travel through a snow storm.

AccuWeather is saying 6-10 on Monday night the 11, the forecast usually changes.
Thanks, sounds like she will miss it. She just sent me a snowy pic from inside the park just off the Northway. Meanwhile we just had our first <30 night which is early for us. Had some hoses freeze up. Decided I better shut down and blow out the water supply to my out buildings.

I did a thing today. Actually it took me about a week to get the plumbing to stop leaking, but today I got it all operational. The water coil is working perfectly and slowly warming a 40 gallon tank of water from about 40df. I also got the on demand electric water heater going today as well. No more running out of hot water! I'm hoping once the tank is hot I won't have to use any electricity.

I filled the garage with locust and ash for the coming cold. We are supposed to hit close to 50 tomorrow before the cold on Monday night through Wednesday. I'm ready this mud is already on my nerves makes a mess of any outside job. My younger lab was a muddy pig after running for a couple hours today.

We just had 15° yesterday morning. 18 at my house and then 15 as I got about a mile away. Unusually cold
I don't remember what it was yesterday morning, but this morning it was 30. Indiana is a long state. ;) We got teens coming Monday, though..

We put in a small load of yellow birch which gives us a 4 x 4 rack full inside, we'll also put in two good loads of cherry tomorrow morning.

Yeah, I’m not far from Lake Michigan. Sounds like some cold weather coming Monday here!
Lake effect will modify that some? My brother, on the west side of the lake, is looking at single digits for Mon. and Tues.

I'm sure with temps like what they are calling for most here will burn through some wood. I know when it is cold I keep the stoves fed, this is where they are worth their weight in gold!

Not much hardwood has been burned so far this year, we have 6-10 inches of snow coming in so we try and get our wood in before any storm hits.

Since we heat from the basement, we do burn more. We should be done with burning pine tomorrow in the afternoon, that will be just over three face cord burned this year with another two face up for the spring.
