This morning and most of yesterday I was out at daughter Chris' place splitting the wood Scott and I had gotten sawn up.
Ace lent a hand and did pretty good for a man who really only has the use of one arm. Think about this the next time you feel sorry for yourself or think you cannot do something.
While Ace worked on one side of the pile I worked on the other. We had what was sawn up split in short order.
Tomorrow it will be back to sawing up another great pile to be split later. So far about a cord or a little less has been split and stacked. A cord is a stack of wood 4 ft by 4 ft. by 8 ft or 128 cubic foot.
I figure that they will need 8 cords at least to get them through the winter. That would be 8 times what we already have split and stacked above. You can see what I will be doing all fall.
While we worked ourselves into a sweat, Heiden took it easy.
