This was not exactly how I planned to start my new channel. We are in the middle of a blizzard that is affecting most of the Northern US. Our wood lot is pretty much snowed in right now.There is no point in clearing out the yard until the wind and snow slow down some. We shovel a path and it fills right in quickly.So for today we are riding out the storm and trying to stay warm.The wood piles are providing a very nice and unexpected benefit to our homestead though. They are creating a wind block and protecting our picket fence line. Normally the wind blasts directly at the fence line. We have pure sandy soil so the fence posts get wobbly and we risk losing our fence in high winds.But with the firewood piles out there, the fence is looking pretty secure. I like it.In the Spring I plan to move the firewood piles and processing over to our 15 acre wooded lot so we can clean up the front yard. But I might just leave a row of firewood out here as a wind break for the fence line. - Outdoor and Sports - 41463CountryWoodProducts
