that time of year

Those that live in the south or who don't use a woodstove or fireplace 
to heat don't get to see this view.
At our house there is wood cut, split and seasoned all year.
This time of year under the deck off the house is full and waiting for cold. 

 This wood will keep us warm from November through April.
  Each time I go out with the dogs, I swing by the deck 
and pick up an armful. 
On the nice days I make extra trips to make sure the house is full of wood 
so I won't have to go out on those sub zero days or nights
 or in the rain or snow or ice to refill the wood.

Makes one feel a little noble and old fashioned. 

This has been done forever all over the world.
