First cold weather arrives…

Today we woke up to our first ‘cold’ weather of the year…finally! It has been a bit on the warm side throughout October, often close to setting new records and hopefully that has changed. Time to split some wood and fire up the wood stove tonight as the low will be 43°. A sip of Bulleit Bourbon and hot Minorcan Clam Chowder is on the menu…

Firewood for Winter…

Fresh cut oak thanks to Hurricane Irma…

After Hurricane Irma came through last month, numerous trees were downed throughout the area. I drove my truck around the neighborhoods and countryside and collected as much as I could handle…three truck loads of oak. This wood will need to sit for a year and season before burning in the wood stove.

Welcome…
