Frosty Log

Frost Growing from Saw Cut

This morning during my morning walk around the wood cutting area I noticed frost growing out of the kerfs of a log.

Frosty Log

That’s red maple (Acer rubrum).  Two days ago, when I cut the log, the temperature was in the forties °F.  This morning it’s in the teens °F.  When the water left the log it immediately froze.

I'm a chainsaw, chainsaw mill, log splitter, axe and outdoor fanatic. I purchased a my first chainsaw, a Stihl 020, in 1992. I've added a Stihl 036 and Stihl 046 to my collection. I split wood with a Wetterlings Splitting Maul and Ames Super Splitter. When my body's had enough I use a Timberwolf TW-P1 log splitter. I use a Logosol Big Mill basic and Timberjig to mill lumber. I stack firewood in Holzhausen round wood piles.
