With chokecherry jelly canning all done, it's time to finally finish firewood gathering. Today's plentiful morning rain delays the work until tomorrow, but the moisture provided is comforting in that it will make the cutting safer. It was beginning to get a little too dry to go out cutting and risk having the chainsaw throw down a spark into parched needles and grass.
