At the moment, downed trees are causing a real problem, but all I can see is next year's firewood. I had such trouble getting firewood over the last few weeks that I ran out just as the storm hit.
Sometimes it feels like being stranded in a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean — all that water and not a drop to drink. All these trees, and not a log to be had. So two things — please, don't waste the trees and secondly, better business models for firewood sales so old folks with the money to buy wood don't end up without heat in winter.
