The amount of wood that is needed to heat the house and shop is a job that is not considered a chore. Every year it takes about 10 chords to make us comfortable. This is the first year that I have been able to completely have 2 years worth of wood in the dry before spring arrives. With that said, it did take many days that most folks would not have ventured out to cut, haul, stack wood, but its my way of thoroughly enjoying every drop of the out doors - even when its 9-10 degrees! Bundle up and all the work gets the blood flowing. What a great way to spend the coldest days of the year.
