Shrinking Woodpile

January 2, 2018

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
When temperatures are this cold, my woodpile seems to noticeably shrink each day. Temperatures have been sub-zero for a few days now in a row. Before apparently warming up, temperatures are supposed to dip to -10 or lower in the higher elevations. Makes you glad you have hardwoods to burn instead of just spruce or fir like they do in some northern areas. 

Before subzero
After subzero

May the forest be with you,
