That Time Again

Tree Guy and Second Son arrived unexpectedly yesterday and started unloading chainsaws, etc.  TG said they were going down to the big oak in the goat pen and start cutting those huge rounds into chunks that would fit in the splitter.  You wouldn't know it by the temperature, but it's time to start thinking about firewood again.  The record for the most consecutive days of ninety degrees and above was set in 1899 when there were twenty days straight.  The weatherman was almost giddy as he announced, at day sixteen, there was a good chance we could beat the record this year!  I was not nearly as excited at that prospect.  TG and Son will be back today.  A well-stocked woodpile; now that's exciting.
