How much wood . . .


We started the chilly morning by moving some firewood off the stacks (on the left) and onto the wagon.

A nice load of split wood.
Notice some of the many wood sheds in the background. 
That's Brother Martin, the resident priest.

We drove a few meters over to the house.
One of the members put a metal slide into this chute under my window, and we quickly threw the wood into the cellar with a lot of clanging noise.

I am really impressed.
The Franziskusgemeinschaft here in Austria, with 18 members living in community, heats the living quarters and water solely by burning wood which they chop in their forest every winter.

Just like the "good ole days" . . . I notice in the first photo some bags hanging with what looks like cobs of corn in them. What are they going to do with that?

Quite a lot of work, so it helps to have extra hands!
