Was wondering, article didn't say to keep the wood covered before you use it. If it gets rained on seems like it would soak up the water. SO, you guys cover yours?

I do not cover mine because it dose not rain much, we have had 4.57 inches so far this year. Where I live and the winters are real dry snow. Seems like with the stack tight I only have to get wood from one end of the stack and it stays free of snow except the top. When I lived in a rainy/wet winter area I just put tin on the top. I wraped a couplel of cords up once and it got all moldy and damp. That wood stunk for a long time and did not burn good. Then I just built a open shed to put it under. I stack it close to the house so it is easy to get. Do a Google search for "Seasoning+Firewood" lots of information comes up about it. Mark H.

That is because a School or goverment high paid group did the testing. Mark H.
