Just got ½ cord of split pecan at Big John's Wood Products south of Benbrook, Tx. for the winter - a little fire in the fireplace is all we need to heat up the house at night and kick off the thermostat so we don't use the electric heat. $120 for ½ a cord saves us $300 in electric bills. With my small box Ford Ranger I can only bring home ¼ cord at a time, have to make 2 trips (about 15 mi away is all). half of it stacked in the garage other half in the truck ½ cord ready for the fireplace and/or smoker! In NYS, a full cord used to be $75-$90 10 yrs. ago (full, not just face!). Down here in Texas they sell 4 sticks in plastic wrap for $4.00! ½ cord for $120 is bad enough, if I had the room I could get a full face cord for $205 or ¾ cord for $170, but with the wife's therapy on her leg and saving for taxes, we'll have to be frugal and stretch the ½ cord as far as we can! Oh, don't mind the busted fan, about 20 years old, knocked it over and the blades shattered like glass! In the garbage Thursday if I can't find a project for the parts!
