    a fine reply, thanks pigfarmer. those of us who've heated our abodes with wood and who've had the opportunity to select fell split and stack know what the expression 'heating with firewood you warm yourself thrice' means.

    just a quick 'wikipedia' on 'ironwood':

    'Ostrya virginiana, the American hophornbeam, is a species of Ostrya native to eastern North America, from Nova Scotia west to southern Manitoba and eastern Wyoming, southeast to northern Florida and southwest to eastern Texas. Populations from Mexico and Central America are also regarded as the same species. Other names include eastern hophornbeam, hardhack (in New England), ironwood, and leverwood. Ironwood may be slow growing but it has the densest, hardest wood of any native tree species.'

    Got things mostly buttoned up for winter. Still have to service the generator and motorcycle. I drain the fuel and put in fresh, lube & oil etc.

    Last winter never happened here. We've had plenty of years with with below zero weather for days and times when you run out of places to put the snow after a while. But last year, zip. Didn't even use one tank of gas for the snow thrower. Ominous, but if it happened again this year I won't complain too loudly. Hopefully it won't make up for it with Double Winter this year :)
