A half a chord of dried, split oak. I have always scrounged and split my own wood, but just didn't do well this year. First time I ever bought it. While it is satisfying to scrounge and split your own, for the time and labor involved this makes sense. They even delivered it, but I have to stack it :-)
Was thinking the same......I have plenty of downed trees here at the house I could pull out of the woods and turn into firewood, but I just don't have time. And don't want to risk cutting my leg off with the chainsaw, nor be sore for days from all the physical work. Getting old sucks!
I have geothermal, so it's dirt cheap to heat the house on that. The last two years I've kept our wood stove insert roaring through the winter, but then I'm having to pay to run the water heater (when the geothermal is running, hot water is free!)
I'm thinking about just having enough wood and charcoal nearby to run the wood stove for a week should we lose power or something. Otherwise, I'm going without it this year and see what the power bill look like. Even if it's $100 extra a month for 2-3 months, it's probably not worth the felling, sawing, splitting, stacking, trips in and outside to restock, and all the cleaning.
