    The rounds will get split and stacked first, the cherry and ash will get bucked up/split/stacked last.

    The wife made Lasagna for supper tonight, what are you eating tonight?

    Some of these would be nice with a cup of coffee.

    I have the coffee but the rolls will have to wait, maybe when we have our first fire we can feed on a pan.

    I'll start splitting that pile of rounds early tomorrow, it's under some pine trees which should block the sun. Since it's supposed to be hot out, I'll clean the three gallon water cooler today and put some ice & water in it tomorrow morning.

    The wife just agreed with me that we'll have those cinnamon buns ready for our first fire with coffee. We'll look at the forecast so we can have them ready for the first night in the low forties.

    If you're talking about the rounds and the hardwood logs then I'm not sure but we have four years worth stacked and three plus are Well Seasoned .

    If we get three cord which is ten face cord from the hardwood rounds and logs then I would be happy. Once the leaves start coming off the trees, we plan on taking down some ash before the EAB hit it so we'll be filling up any open stacking areas.

    I cleaned out the three gallon Igloo water cooler and by the sounds of it, I'll need it especially Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Hot and humid weather is expected across the area on Tuesday with
    afternoon highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s with dewpoints
    increasing into the lower 70s. The probability for heat index values
    exceeding Heat Advisory criteria Tuesday afternoon and evening are
    increasing with each model run. Wednesday may also see heat index
    values exceeding Heat Advisory criteria as an approaching cold front
    continues to be slower than originally anticipated.
