The first day of spring usually means . . .

. . . an empty woodshed.

Take a look back to my post of Nov. 6, 2009, where I was excited about my full woodshed. If my calculations are correct, the shed holds about 1.4 cords of wood. With only the one wood stove going, I estimate we saved about $500 on the electric bill this winter, not to mention all the calories burned off in cutting, splitting and hauling the wood.

If you look to the right of this post, you'll see one of my favorite proverbs on the subject of "enlightenment." So, one of the first projects for this spring is to chop wood.
