Risa has been playing with her "new" freebie electric chainsaw that was built in the 1960s (or even earlier). But she's hoping to entice her son over for the splitting. This is lodgepole pine, which can be hard to split. Cherry logs do the same thing. With those she learned to zip a stripe down the side of each log through the bark down into the cambium, and now she does this with lodgepole as well; this seems to help. This is the last of the Craigslist woodpile that we got thirteen months ago.
