In the nick of time

Looking at the forecast for the coming week, it was clear that our wood supplies would be severely challenged if we did not make an effort today to fill up the woodshed. Fortunately, I found some excellent quality dead trees just off our chemin which would provide ready-seasoned, dense, good-sized logs for the wood burner. Within 3 hours we had felled and sectioned them, loaded up the car and brought them back to the house, chainsawed them into useable chunks and stashed them in the woodshed. The rain started just as the last logs were being put away. Temperatures have now dropped and the rain has turned to snow and is settling fast. More is forecast for tomorrow, so I am relieved that we were able to get the wood in in time.
