We didn’t waste any time getting back to operation cleanup!! The next morning we headed out and first up was loading the newly re-built wood bin with the pile of maple firewood we picked up for free in Guysborough. We had to cut and split them.

With 14 cords left to block (and split), I’ve been trying to get some time in each evening to pick away at the pile. This evening I found out that I am not allergic to a wasp sting.
