Ready For Winter

Every Spring Mr. Adams accumulates a big pile of logs in the yard, and during the summer he gets the boys to help him split and stack it all to prepare for Winter. This year was no exception.

They officially tucked away the last piece yesterday.....14 cords!

Good job Mr. Adams! 


  1. Wow!! Your blog is fantastic, Lori!! Just found it on a google search! Your stockpile of wood looks nothing short of amazing!

  2. Thanks, Betty! There are quite a few people lusting over out firewood stash!

  3. What will he do when the boys are no longer around?

  4. Ha! no kidding! maybe get a monitor heater? no...I guess we will struggle along as best as we can to keep doing it ourselves....and get them to help during their visits!
