Cheery fire

We finally got around to using some of the wood I cut and split at the end of 2017. We don’t use the fireplace all that often, but with this being a playoff weekend I thought it would add a bit of warmth to the front room (my wife is the football fan). Note: it was 17°F here this morning where last January 13th it was 61°F!

We went through a lot of the fallen hickory, and a few pieces of choke cherry from a downed tree this past Spring. The hickory burned well; the cherry could have seasoned longer. In the end, though, it was all ashes ;o)

Wood cleared from my 2018 garden project. This will get bucked and split for next winter. There are plenty more scrubby trees and standing deadwood available as I try to reclaim overgrown areas.

Nothing like a good fire in the fireplace in winter!

There’s a primal feeling to it, and it brings back childhood memories of watching the same long ago. I remember lying on a bearskin blanket in front of a fireplace when we lived in New Hampshire.

That wood warms you up about 7 times
Maybe 8... I had to move some of it a couple of times when bringing it closer to the house :D
