But we could still get another cold stretch and now we are prepared for it!
Prepared with 13 cords of beautiful, dry wood! Running out at -40 truly sucks and will not be happening again!
You know it's a lot of wood when the wood guy drives a semi!
Look at it all fall off the truck!
It's good to have friends with big toys!
Like everything else around here, the wood has been throughly inspected by the dogs!
And a little Founder update--Yes, it was a fight. A big, nasty pack fight. I hate those. Of course, I was home alone! Breaking the fight up wasn't the hard part. The hard part came when badly injured Founder went under the deck and would not come back out. I had to get my father-in-law to come over and make a bunch of noise on the deck so Founder would get scared and crawl towards me! I didn't have that brainstorm until I'd been laying in the snow trying to get him myself for over an hour!
At first I thought he had a broken leg. He wouldn't move and when he did finally come out, he made sounds I have never heard before, didn't believe a dog could make and never, ever want to hear again. Those screams pierced my heart! Fortunately, Founder was not as badly injured as it first appeared. All bones, tendons and ligaments are intact. The screams were caused by intense pain which was in turn caused by multiple puncture wounds! He is covered with them. He looks awful, but after three days of good dope at the vet, he was able to come home!
He still looks awful, but he's moving better, eating well, wooing and would really like to be allowed outside more to play. He's a little hard to pill and needs a massived dose of antibiotics. Assuming I manage to get them all down his throat and no infection kicks in, Founder will be fully healed in a couple weeks! That's worth the enormous vet bill!
