It is raining again this morning. And it rained for a while last night and yesterday and the night before that and the day before that. It feels like it has rained almost every day since our load of logs was delivered to us… and it actually has… last night the local weatherman said we have not had two consecutive days without some rain for the past seven weeks.
So we feel we have done fairly well despite so many rainy days, because we now have about six cords of the new firewood cut, split by hand, and stacked in our well-ventilated shed. The shed is full now because we already had some wood left from last year, but we plan to stack two more rows against the outside of the shed. Whatever amount of wood is left in the remaining logs will be cut and split and stacked somewhere outside to be burned another year.
This is the pile of logs the way it looked yesterday afternoon just as it was starting to rain again. We’re not sure exactly how many logs are left… it is almost impossible to get an accurate count because of the way they are piled.
We feel we have made good progress, especially with all the rain, but as you can see we are still far from being “done.” It was a BIG load!
