Yes, thanks, I have about 4 1/2 cords and I will be cutting more. The wood stove really feels good on these cold nights! Today I cleaned and serviced my chain saw and installed a brand new bar, chain and sprocket. It cuts like a dream!
That’s an experience that I don’t forget either, although I see it fairly often, especially in spring and fall. I thought I might be able to climb up and see some snow today but the temperature stayed warm overnight and we had a little rain.
I remember you had a heavy snow year there last winter. My house has a very steep pitched roof and steel instead of shingles, so the snow slides off. I do have to rake the snow off my wood pile cover though and of course clear the walk and driveway. A snow blower is a great machine! After a deep snow I also take the blower down to the mail boxes and clear that out for the mail lady too. If it’s all right with you, I’ll take the snow this year and you can have a warm, mild winter!
What a glorious combination of elements in your photo. Green, blue, and white is such a beautiful combination, and the obvious crispness of the air is an added delight. I hope you get your snow, for sure — especially since you’ve got a nice stash of wood already, and a well-working chainsaw to go with it.
When I encounter conditions as they were that day, I take a lot of pictures, and I enjoy reviewing them quite often too. Life for me here is very basic and simple and I think that enhances the enjoyment of nature and her variety of presentations.
