Cutting some firewood…


This was anticipated to be a quite short session, because…


…I only had three pallets in my possession and next to no old scrap lumber fit only for stovewood. So I broke up the pallets yesterday, and…


…cut them to stove lengths this morning. Got no more than two wheelbarrows full.


That brings me to almost three full tiers, or something just over half a cord of tightly-packed old lumber for the woodstove. More than enough for a typical winter.

Of course I don’t plan for typical winters when I don’t have to. There’s still a bunch of driftwood I hauled out of the wash after last year’s epic Monsoon. It’s stored at what used to be my woodlot, and I’ll need the chainsaw for it.

    Well I’ve got 11 cords in the shed! Plenty and then some for the average winter here in the Copper River Basin, Alaska but we had 17 inches of snow yesterday and last year in November we had some -30 and some -50 later on. I’m old and infirm enough I don’t want to have to make up a short fall in those conditions!

    best keep stacking. might not be any lp at the store to run your heaters later on this winter. i have over a years worth of wood stacked but i’m going back to stacking asa the leaves drop. it might be a hard COUPLE of winters.

To the stake with the heretic!
