How does your wood pile look? Mine is looking a little thin, but I think we will make it through. I have always loved a good wood pile. I guess as a kid, it just represented work and lost Saturdays, but as an adult it is a comfort and a joy. Some say it is like money in the bank. So it is. Some take great pride in their wood piles. Each piece is flush with the others, they face due south for maximum sun, and are spaced perfectly to allow for air flow. You know who you are. Others just cut and throw it in a pile to be sorted out later. You usually find these piles near an outdoor boiler and a tired owner who has a part time job collecting wood. Dryness doesn't matter so much, but large volume is important. Some people take it to a whole new level and make an art form out of it. I recently came across a beautiful wood pile picture contest. They really can be an art form - for those of us with fuego-itis.
