Matt said above my splitting/piles are now all covered in snow. I may or may not get motivated and uncover them, I'll probably start cutting some of the leaning locust and bringing it right into the house, I like to do that this time of the year, more fun than getting snow off the pile/tarp. Truth is I probably should get the snow off the pile/tarp as split more since I have plenty of wood cut and the locust isn't going anywhere and I have more coming from the neighbors trees when I drop them :dizzy:, this is a good problem though right :D.
Here's where I'm at for next yrs wood, I'm a bit over half done right now. The other bay in the woodshed has just a bit more than this in it, I probably should load up the back a bit more since the shelf is in the way of loading a lot in the front, but then again I could cut locust out of the woods next yr if I need to:chainsaw:.

Well the other side is now down to about this same amount.
I filled up a couple small wheelbarrow loads and one big one for the house tonight.
That means I'm close to the half way point of being thru my wood on that side. It also means I can start refilling that side when I get the one above finished.
Sounds like more snow coming this week so I'm not sure that will happen anytime soon.

Cleaned up the splitting area/compacted the little snow left and got the snow off the tarp so I'm ready for the next chance I get at splitting.
I also got a couple large wheelbarrow loads up to the top split and put onto the stack. Since I didn't burn even half a wheelbarrow load yesterday I feel as though I got ahead a good bit only doing a little. I haven't added to the woodstove today and don't plan on it until later tonight and then I can get a nice hot fire going since the house is plenty warm right now. It's 34 out now heading to 36 so I'm pretty sure I can get it back to temp pretty easy tonight :havingarest:.

Only had about 15min to play with the firewood today.
Nice piles Matt.
Funny, I had just a few mins more than that myself.
Managed to get another two wheelbarrows filled pretty good split and then stacked it on the woodshed. Can't believe how wet the wood is from the condensation :eek:.
Here's when I started. Screen Shot 2020-01-26 at 8.49.28 PM.png

Blocked and split a cord of the big stuff after lunch today. Too big for the processor so pushed it through the Eastonmade 12-22.

Trying to keep it fed is a full time job for a couple people. I generally block up a cord or so, then unwrap the splitter and push it through.

Added another load to the pile spot and spent some time splitting. I like how the plastic pallets won’t rot, but DAMN are they slick. Wish she had more though, I don’t think I’ll ever have to replace them
