We are getting ready for winter around here. We have been busing getting our yard and house ready for the harsh days of cold and snow. We have electric heat at our house and because it can be pricey on those super cold days, we burn wood in our fireplace almost everyday. I usually start it in the morning and continue it going throughout the day and evening. Sooo, that means that we have to get wood somehow. Last year we bought a couple of cords of wood and it was expensive. So this year, Scott got some free tree trunks and it was up to us to cut it into logs and split it all. Thanks to my dad for splitting a ton of it and to our friend, Dwight, for letting us borrow his log splitter. It took about three full days to get it all done. Most of the time, it was a full family affair. Hauling, splitting, stacking….hauling, splitting, stacking….
