Here's a look at the wood pile we've set aside here at our place in preparation for winter's cold. That's locust in the front and a like amount of oak you can see poking out from behind. We typically burn them together, since the locust puts out a higher level of heat BTUs but burns faster, while the oak burns milder but also slower. The two together make for a nice fire.
The stack isn't as big as it might have been, simply because wood isn't our primary source of heat here at the house in town. What you are seeing here is an emergency preparedness effort to ensure that we are able to remain warm in the event of a winter power outage.
