The cold sure makes the wood split easier. We used to throw the wet birch aside until a cold spell. Same as the twisted spruce.

The cold can be accompanied by a brilliant day, blue skies and defined mountains. That’s today for you. They don’t come around often. It’s best to put your face towards the sun and count your lucky stars.

    I didn’t realise wood was easier to split in cold weather – that could be a useful tip. I haven’t had my fire lit more than twice this winter – I find it upsets my nose and chest quite a bit so I try not to do it often. It isn’t too cold in my house when it’s frosty but calm – it’s only when it’s windy it gets cold as it seems to come straight in. And that’s when the fire draws best so those are the nights I light it.

      Thanks Julie! That tip about the wood probably won’t be that useful in New Zealand. It looks like the Frog Pond correspondent might be missing again. 🙂
