I'm tired of the heat and humidity.  Good for my caterpillars but I just had 2 cords of firewood delivered to the mountain property and am looking forward to winter there.   

No dead/dying/fallen trees on all that land to harvest firewood?

I have a couple winters worth of wood stacked up that needs to be split- combo of fallen trees and dead standing ones that I cut.

I'll get the log splitter going in the Fall (so November) when it feels more like firewood season.  I'll never pay for firewood again. Overpriced, mostly green, never cut to the right size, and with other crap mixed in despite being advertised as seasoned hardwood.

Oh I have a hundred years worth of forest to harvest as firewood, but you know what's easier than that?  $500 and a phone.  

Down here in SoMD I agree with you.  I can usually find cut wood and split it myself with my electric-hydraulic splitter.  We're always one hurricane away from a lifetime's worth of firewood, yes?

Gas hydraulic splitter here. Bought it in 2005 after clearing part of the lot for the building site. Its held up well. I think I bought firewood twice in all the years since. With 6 acres of hardwoods and oak tree disease pretty common here, usually no shortage of wood to harvest for fuel.

Electric is nice and easy - quiet and lightweight but you're limited by the design which is for a standard 15A circuit breaker so there's only so much they can do.  I've used my little Honda generator to use it in more remote locations but really gasoline is better for serious work.  We mostly have tulip poplar to split around here after storms.  Randomly the county came by and cut down a while bunch of trees by the sides of the road early this year so I went out with my chainsaw and muck truck and got all my firewood this winter for free.  The tulip trees are randomly easy to split, even huge logs.  

 

I'll get a gasoline one for the mountain property though.

Pretty gross.

Still looks like we get a couple days with a refreshing airmass featuring normal temps and dewpoints in the 50s the end of the week, but the warm and sultry conditions look to return pretty quickly. Embrace MA extended summer. :yikes:

Ok I'll admit it.  I hate endless summer.  As a HS'er running cross country I can't imagine having to deal with this crap.  In Michigan I can remember running in snow with 5/8" spikes in October.  Down here it's just as likely I'd be running topless through sprinklers in November.  Where's a solid volcano eruption when we need it?

:yikes: Careful with that. 

@leesburg 04 asked the same question on January 15th this year.

Meanwhile, the HRRR kills off the line prior to 95.

HRRR mixes out the dewpoints to the low 60s. Not sure I buy it. NAM nest still has a bit of a local minimum through the area - but it's still 66+
