When it is this cold outside, what could be better than sitting in front of a nice warm fire?
This past week our fireplace has been working overtime. If that is the case in your house too, you may burning through your winter wood supply a little faster than originally expected. Fear not. A neighbor on the 300 block of Cushmore Road has got you covered. You can purchase firewood from the rack by the curb in front of their house, any time of day. It's simple — the operation works on the honor system – just load the wood into your car or truck and leave $15 in the mailbox. Interested? Take Second Street Pike to Madison Avenue and then make a left on Cushmore. You will see the rack on the left hand side of the road.
