Just a share if I may. I am heating our home with wood heat this year (trying to keep electric down). So I cut about 5 cords of wood and purchased 1 cord at the beginning of the season. Thought that might do it...well, beginnig of January I was gettin low and purchased another cord of wood...burned through that pretty darn quick (we just got 15" of snow AGAIN this past two days)...so with all the snow going out to get wood is hard, buying wood now is expensive. We have the funds, but with five kids and medical bills that never seem to go away...it's just not what we want to spend them on ......anyway...I needed to order another cord to get us to the end of February...or maybe just the 3rd week of Feb....
....so last night while we were sleeping a tree fell in our backyard. It was the closest tree to the house (we have 3 ft of snow in the entire backyard) A tree that is at least 1 cord. Dry as they come, very good firewood!! I got 1/3 of it cut today and in the house a burning ...and saved about $200.00...
...so I think the Lord heard me when I said I am not so sure what to do about this wood situation.. :)
Next year I will do a better job of getting 8 cords of wood in for winter. Plus it has been very cold this year...most of January has seen 15 degrees and lower ...one week never got about ZERO.
Okay, that 's my share time off subject :)
Love you all -----
