That time of year, again

Not this morning, but a few days ago....and just because (click to enlarge)

We are still in the tail end of this year's burning season, but it is time to start getting ready for the next one. We had logs delivered last fall, where they've been sitting all winter. Larry also took a few trees from our property. But....seeing as the snow has's now time to deal with the pile.

Larry and Tyler have spent the last two mornings, carting them up and then sawing them. Hopefully, one more morning should do it for the cutting part...then comes the splitting and stacking. Brittney and Jake (and hopefully I will be well enough to pitch in too) will help with the stacking part. Our goal, as long as the weather co-operates, is to have most of it done by the end of the week.

Bringing the logs up

Tyler is sooo strong!

Positioning it just right

The fun part... (and Tyler trying to hide from the camera....he is sooo different from his brother ;0)

Carting more logs..

Still more...

The pile so far...

That's a lot of wood! How long would it last? Through the winter or just part of it? We found we used our wood stove a little less this year than usual. Still enjoyed it though!

Thanks, Jacqueline!

Shannon -- That wood will last the whole winter...depending of course on the winter. Hopefully, there will be a bit more than we need. We too used our wood stove a little bit less this year and therefore will have a little bit of that left over. Nothing like wood heat though (and...can't beat the price either ;0) )
