Firewood Followup

There are simply too many distractions on a nice winter like this one that compete for how to use up your weekend time.  Cross country skiing, snowmobiling in the Rainbow Mountains and fishing in the Bella Coola River are all strong competitors to getting the firewood finished. While this project was started at Christmas time when the "boy" was home to help out, I finally got everything piled and ready to store this weekend.  It took a fair bit less wood to heat our home so far this winter, so it doesn't take too many piles like this one to replace what was used up. We need a winter like this once in awhile, to remind you when you have a bad one and the wood really disappears.   It's a mix of birch, alder and a little bit of cottonwood.  Almost all of it blew down in the fall storms with the saturated ground we had after the October flood.

Quite the contrast in weather this weekend.  While Saturday was a spectacular blue sky day with highs of 12 or 13 C, Sunday dawned with low cloud, fresh snow on the mountains and even a snow flurry or two in the valley.  Much more typical March weather.  Grizzly
