measuring firewood to see how close to a cord it is

The rough estimate I did says it's just under half a cord. A great deal at 50 dollars when you throw in delivery and stacking. What makes it even better is the guy offered to cut the next round to whatever size we need, which will be nice for our tiny Jotul 602 woodstoves.
