Getting Ahead On The Firewood Game

It seems to have been a long winter and we seem to have almost finished our four cords of wood, so we had to buy another cord that needed to be seasoned wood, to finish off the winter.  And of course it was more expensive than what we usually had paid.  So we decided to buy all our firewood for next winter, this spring; which will give it time to be really nice and seasoned.  Plus a lady down the road gave us some wood and is having another tree cut down this summer, so she said we could have that wood.  It needs splitting, but every little bit helps.  For next winter we probably need another three cords.

I have several friends who have converted their central heating furnaces, one to coal and another to wood pellets; which I have never heard of before for a furnace.  Just for a wood stove.  I'll have to look into it.  Oil is so terribly expensive, even though we hardly use it.
