Here's the largest amount of the wood, now stacked on pallets along the west side of the house along the old concrete dog run.
There's still a relatively small loose pile of wood in the front yard, but Lisa was able to re-close the chain link fence, and temporarily wire it back into place until we make a decision regarding installing a gate in this part of the fence.
It is now cold enough to start using the wood stove. Our first picks of wood are off of the small pile in the front yard. Today while we were walking to the post office after lunch, it started to sleet, so we were very happy to get home into our warm living room and throw a couple of more logs on the fire, all the more so because I'm still wrestling with some sort of cold that I fear is about to head down into my chest to set up housekeeping for a while.
