Stacking Wood the Ohio Way

This is the way Chuck and Sharon keep their home toasty warm in the winter. There were at least three huge stacks of firewood. I have a little plastic thermostat on the wall that I adjust, no real work involved.

I asked what kind of wood it is and Chuck says “Ash”.

When I got home I ordered this book for Chuck. not that he needs any tips on how to chop, stack or dry wood but just to read about the Scandinavian way.  ( It’s a bestseller- click title for article on how it became a “global hit”) – Norwegian Wood by Lars Mytting

I heard about this book when I visited Norway last fall.  I sent it to my brother in Okanogan. He heats with a woodstove, too.

Report from Okanogan WA from My Sister- Guest Blog

My sister’s visiting our brother in Okanogan WA and has sent a few pics from her phone. It’s considered “high desert”.

I wish I were with them.

Here are bins of firewood, stacked, ready to burn to keep warm this winter

The other day she sent a pic of these delicious peaches
