The weather was taking a turn toward the cold and rainy, but seems to have paused in that endeavor. So I was able to spend part of this afternoon making up for time I lost on the Monday morning water run, and I’m roughly halfway through getting my firewood put back away.
Two full tiers, all neatly stacked. There were four and a half tiers left in the hoopshed but the new shed is a little wider and a lot squarer, so I’ll be surprised if there are four full tiers here. As soon as this is done I can stop cursing last winter for leaving me so much firewood to stack and start blessing last winter for leaving me so little I have to cut in the autumn.
While I was being busy I dragged out my Dremel and one of those vent caps somebody sent me last year and fixed the last of my Jerry cans. These vents aren’t a perfect solution – I’ve been unable to get a non-leaking installation without this stuff – but having gotten them installed and not leaking they certainly solve the glugging problem. The vents on the other two cans have saved me a subjective 14 man-centuries of standing around holding a heavy gas can while it s-l-o-w-l-y glugs its contents into the Jeep, just in the past year. So it’s worth the ugly installation.
