 It's been a pretty good day so far. Tomorrow is a wood chopping day. We're not even 1/2 way done with getting all the families the wood they need to burn and winter is coming quick this year.

Thanks! I went to a fall harvest festival in my city today. It was a lot of fun. I hope you are having an equally good time.

 How much wood do you need for the winter?  Just curious, we just had 2 cords delivered, we're in Maryland.  Our winters are either fine or hideous.

pretty much broke, not looking forward to potential government shutdown as it would seriously mess up DHs pay and us getting the bills taken care of, BUT....we're healthy, we have food, the kids are getting along reasonably well, so....guess we're doing ok....personally, I'm pretty jazzed that I was able to remove 3 small tree stumps by myself....just need to take another look and plan the attack on the largest that is driving me batty....

 Not sure about the cords because we count by the farm truck load. Mom & dad need 5 more loads, my brother needs at least 8, sister needs 12-15 and we need at least 12 more. Hopefully mom & dad will get finished this week.. My sister & her dh help during the week. We're working on ours at our house this week as well and then we're moving on to my sisters wood during the week.

I'll be honest in that I'm not even sure how big a cord is. We've just never measured it in cords.

 I used to have a huge stump. It took me an entire year to get rid of it but I did it by myself. Of course I probably did it the hard way. When my ex left I'd go out every time I got frustrated and chop at it and toward the end dig at it. It eventually came out (or at least at ground level.)

I'm not really sure how big a cord is (I know a cord here costs $225), I think it came in two pickups.  You need a LOT of wood, girl!  Where are you?  I'm in Maryland, we have a fireplace on each end of the house so betweem the two we stay nice and toasty.  Farmers Almanac is calling for a nasty winter.

 We're in Ohio. The good thing is that our home is also heated by geo thermal so it helps to keep the bills down but it's an older farm house and has been added on a couple of times. It was to expensive to add geo to the back half so that's where the wood burner comes into play. It actually heats the back half, part of the kitchen, laundry room and then we put a vent into the boys room upstairs so it could heat it & part of the upstairs. It's the last room on the heating ducts so it doesn't get a whole lot of heat off the geo.
