Logging Out

All good things must come to an end, and in this case it means the North Idaho Energy Logs.

Final Log

This is the very last of the North Idaho Energy Logs, sitting atop the box of Pres-to-Logs we keep in the living room for easy overnight access awaiting its call to keep the house warm overnight. As we're now back in our usual-for-February sub-freezing overnight temperatures, I put the North Idaho log on the fire last night because it lasts better, being bigger and denser.

We could get more of these logs, but it requires buying two pallets because they have to truck them to us from Fallon, and also persuading of the businesses up the street to bring their forklift down to our house to unload them. The Pres-to-Logs aren't as good, but they're available here in Fernley only a short drive with the utility trailer, where Big R will load one pallet and we can unload it at our leisure.

Today was my (mostly) day off, so this morning we drove to Reno and got groceries. It was much less crowded and accordingly less stressful. If we'd managed to get away earlier, it would have been better.
