Vova and I cutting up the Oak Trees…

20160220_152831

Vova got his beast of a chainsaw fired up and he came down to cut up the oak trees brought in before winter. We got half of them cut up and the rest are still buried deep in the snow. Tomorrow, I will make a place to put the logs to get ready to split them. This is next years firewood for the winter and from the looks of it, we have about two winters worth here. But I suspect that Vova will get his share and I am hoping he will get a better supply of this good seasoned oak this next year, for the winter, for himself…

I need to cut a short path for the wheelbarrow and then figure out where to stack the splitting logs. Still kind of a bunch of snow, as you can see… 🙂

Spring is here and the sun felt so good today. Svetochka took pictures while we grunted and groaned at the heaviness of the trees. As you see we used a smaller tree to pry the big trees out of the snow and I held them, as Vova used his saw. I was impressed with that saw, it is named, “Дружба” or Friendship! That is what is stamped in the steel of the engine case and it is an old Soviet Union chain saw…

Just another day in the Tiny Russian Village…
