    We got about that much as well.

    South of us/north of Duluth got several inches of slop. Power outages and lots of broken trees.

    So do you do a nuddy run to get from the sauna back to the house through the snow in winter? That'd be refreshing.

    Normally not as we don’t spend much time up here in the winter. But definitely at our home sauna.

    Got the near bay finished yesterday, 5.5 cords in there. I've just been ambling about stacking for an hour or so here and there when I've had a bit of spare time, doesn't seem like much work doing it that way. There's 2/3 cord of @LondonNeil 's English oak rounding out the bay. I've been told that it dries slowly but it has 3 Aussie summers to dry out, should be enough. The rest of the wood in that bay is dry already.

    bit alien to you but split it small and it dries faster. however i suspect your summer's will have it dry in no time.

    It is split small, some of those splits are less than 6 inches!

    Here's mine. Just got the new splitter built and my son (4yo) has been asking to split wood every day. So every day we've been going up and he runs the lever while I load the wood. Working on 19-20-21 wood.

    Here is my wood stack area. Been a little slow this year in gathering wood. It’s been a hot & humid summer. Finally, cooled off and starting to get to some dead trees I’ve been putting off. Most of the wood is for sale, although I will use some for my fireplace.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks okay to me, when it falls you can expose new parts to dry

    Glad I got my pile moved inside before the first snowfall (today!).

    Got this season's wood moved to dry storage, should be enough to last us until December or January before I'll have to tap into another stack. Moved an entire holzhausen of ash that I split and stacked last November. Here it was:

    And here it is now (the lower half of first photo is actually about 1/8 cord of cherry):

    Still not enough room for all of it, and the last of itf that was closest to the ground was the most moist of the whole pile. I rigged up a few temp cribs with some fans inside our semi-enclosed spa room to speed up the drying:

    The room is open to the elements, though still sheltered from the rain, we're in the middle of some demo and remodel of the area:

    [​IMG]

    But you can see how the room makes sense as it is right next to our woodstove, which is also right next to the dry wood storage:
