As I was rearranging some wood this morning, I tried to count up the amount of wood used. Maybe a cord. Including the lead in shoulder season. I was moving some black locust to a different rack, making an empty rack to stack on. Consolidated the BL with some 3+yr red oak. I've been waiting for it to get cold, before burning the BL. It was in the 70's this time, last year. Most every day recently, in the 40's. A few nights in the single digits, and the BL gets used! Like last year, no snow on the ground. Makes one wonder. No complaints. But, I do like the change of seasons, and miss the snow. Not missing ice, though. I feel bad for people with winter "toys" that need to chase the snow to use them. Not me! I expect to have more shoulder wood for next year. No complaints using the red oak, though. I know i have other ramblings... I'm sure they'll fall out, in time.
