You know when I said nearly a month ago that we’d reached crisis point with the wood for the burners? Perhaps I was being a bit melodramatic.

This is what crisis point looks like:

(I think the giveaway here is being able to see the ground the wood should be stacked on.)

Fortunately, I had a small stash of wood on pallets under a tarp next to the compost heap and a couple of large very well seasoned chunks of acacia in the woods nearby, so we’re good for a few more days. I’ve also got about a week of dry wood waiting near the écovallée parking, but need Tuesday’s forecasted thaw so I can collect it before Saturday’s forecasted rain.

It’s all completely normal for us. And like I said before, next winter it will all be completely different. (Yeah, right.)
