Chainsaw Sunday

In your end of the world, it might be Superbowl Sunday. But in my corner, it’s Chainsaw Sunday. This is the first weekend since the storms that’s been warm and mostly dry, so the neighbors and I were out dealing with the properties. Some cutting more wood, some dealing with nature’s contributions to the wood pile.

Yesterday I hacked up a few downed limbs, the biggest being a good 8 inch diameter. Also took down a few more alders and cut them up into little pieces so that they stack in a convenient woodpile. And today it was gathering some the waste wood from a milling operation, stacking it, and then cleaning up more alder. This alder went in the burn pile, then the burn pile got burned.

Today was also the first outdoor meal of the year, a candle light dinner by the fire.
