Putting in our Winter Wood.
There are still a few scraps at the slab pile that I can take care of in the next few days, and then I will start to venture forth to find one or two more windfalls that I can use as extra insurance. One thing that worries us a bit is that once again this morning we fired up the wood stove, as it was below ten degrees in the yurts, and hard to get out of bed. We're using the stove for warmth in August! That almost makes me think that except for June and July, we'd need to be prepared to have a stove going in the yurts the rest of the year - which isn't so bad, it heats up quickly so far, and likely more so when the pipes no longer smell and we can keep the windows shut.
Tomorrow we are planning on visiting the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition in Thunder Bay, weather permitting, and also the Thunder Bay Co-Op, which even Grandpa hasn't visited before!
