Saturday: More Firewood, A Chainsaw Break-Down And A Cake

We have been so lucky that the power-line crews have downed so much timber along the roads. All that wood can be picked up by anybody, as long as it is within 10m from the edge of the road. So needless to say the last couple of days have been very busy for us. Load after load of firewood has been brought home. And after yesterday’s rain keeping us inside, we ventured out again today for the hauling in the last 2 loads. We were almost finished with the first load when the recoil spring in my chainsaw broke.
1-20151121_140213Since the trees were up to 30 ft from the road the chunks needed to be thrown over to the road, and here you see the lumber-jack throwing firewood around.
A phone call to a Husquarna-dealer in Machias,ME confirmed that they had the part in stock, so I drove down to pick it up. Took me about 90 minutes including a shopping round at the local grocery store. After lunch we headed out again for a last load.
I returned the borrowed trailer to my neighbour and was ready for some coffee and cookies. We are expecting company on Sunday so I busied myself in the kitchen baking a sponge cake. That cake is going to be finished with some fruit, chocolate and whipped cream tomorrow.
So best to have another look tomorrow! Have a great weekend and thanks for dropping by.
