I have completed filling in on the northside of house. I even did a bit of landscaping so it won't look so awful in the spring. In the AM I went into the woods and located some standing dry wood and some fallen stuff that is not on the ground. All that can make good firewood. I brought back several bundles of twigs and dry wood for kindling a fire. I spent time sawing the wood I couldn't break. But the most wonderful event was putting a damper in the stove pipe. I did it and it functions perfectly. Before reporting for shovel duty I filled my tank with a bowl of my super spicy chili. I don't know how it got so hot but I needed the octane to finish my big job.
