Splitting White Oak Firewood

I got out for 3 1/2 hours today and worked on splitting White Oak logs I got about 3 years ago.  It was a crisp morning, in the high teens.

After a few hours I felt a calmness.  This mornings splitting reminded me how good we feel when we persevere.  I came close to calling it quits after a half hour because of the cold.

There used to be four White Oak logs.  I’m down to one more log to split.

My wood shed hoop house is full so I made the pile nearby.  In the next week or two I’m going to to lengthen the shed 10 feet to give me plenty of dry storage.  I want to have enough dry storage to keep a season worth of wood.

There’s plenty to go when I finish but progress is progress.
