I got my first big delivery of firewood today. A full cord of seasoned oak. Measured out to 69 ft3.
Isn’t a cord 126 ft3?
“Yes sir, very sorry about the mix up, sir. We’ll make it right, right away, sir”.
Yep. Just a mixup because half a cord looks just like a full cord to people who sell it by the cord all the time.
[EDIT: They came back out and dumped some more wood. Brought the measured total up to about 110 Ft3. Close enough to call it a round-off error and not worth calling them back again. But now that I have this buffer, i can afford to shop around better for my next cord. I can even affort to buy green wood and let it season this summer.]
