Another load of wood chips arrived today, but I was too tired, and too excited (another story), to get to them when I got home. So they sit, an enormous pile (to me) – "the size of a Volkswagen" according to the lady at the city desk. Last time it took me over 3 hours to transfer to the back yard, one puny wheelbarrow-ful at a time. But it was spitting rain then. Tomorrow will be cool and sunny – perfect chip-hauling weather, so it *should* go a bit faster. I hope.

A squirrel was digging in it already.
