We had rain most of the day yesterday and then A LOT of rain last night.
This tall, dead tree apparently couldn't hold on anymore in the soft, wet dirt. It came down right across our driveway, but got caught up in trees on the opposite side so never hit the ground.
It had been dead so long that nearly all of the bark was off of it which enabled the wood to dry out quite nicely.
Making the first cut was the trickiest part but Papa Pea did a good job of it.
Then the whole length got cut into stove size pieces.
We loaded them into the truck to haul back to our wood splitting area.
I'm dressed in my down-filled work jacket and was none too warm. The day was very damp, cool and foggy. (We're really into mid-summer, you say?)
A rather quick way to get more firewood. Plus, much easier trying to drive in and out of the driveway now.
