Firewood shortfall

Lucy and me cutting tree down

We're getting a little behind schedule on our firewood cutting.

The Oregon battery powered chainsaw has been my main saw since the gas powered Stihl developed compression problems and had to be put out to pasture.

I finally bought a chain saw. It is battery operated, 12". I know, lightweight but sufficient for my needs. I just wanted to be able to get at the wood that I couldn't split with an axe. I walk around my neighborhood with my dog and retrieve broken branches. They are usually the size that's perfect for kindling or the next size up. I also have a friend who let's me work at her place. It's such a good feeling to be able to do something for myself.
