Deadly Catch -vs- Firewood gather
We are almost there in quantity. It has been a grueling firewood season but as you can see in the photo above we have a lot of firewood already cut, split and stacked. If you click on the photo you will see the firewood fairy in the photo. Like those seamen on Deadliest Catch we are bruised, sore, worn down, but will not stop until the firewood is in. If we stopped gathering firewood now we would most likely have sufficient fuel for next winter but it is always best to have more than we might need in case of a severe winter. If we don't have enough we would have a real problem as available firewood would be under 4' + of snow and hard to find.
So for us the grind is almost done but not quite. We'll get there if we don't give out or up first and another firewood season will come to an end.
