Even if I used all that wood up, which I won’t, I have a second stack in the next bay. So, even though pride goeth, I think I can say, even if there is a cold snap in March (unlikely), that finally I bought enough wood.

Oh, the stack is some disarray because I made the mistake of commingling seasoned and unseasoned wood in the delivery, hence in the stacking, and hence, unless I was careful to throw back the heavier logs and use only the lighter (dried out, sap-free) wood, in the burning too. Creosote, yum!

So, we have these “Made it!” thoughts coming down the home stretch of winter. High 40s and low 50s starting next week, says weather.com
