A sure sign of Fall is when one gets split-wood delivered into your drive-way. Then you laboriously move it..."moving da Pile"...and then stacking it neatly where it is easily accessible during the anticipated snows of winter. One has do do this early just in case there is an early snow-fall during October...such as 2010.
It is a slow process!
That eventually ends-up with a full wood-locker outside our front door.
