You probably don't remember it, unless you are over ninety. But see the right-hand blob of the red area? That's pretty much the center of the "Dirty Thirties." Compare it to this map.

|Free wood — and more to come!|
All the wood is coming from private land burnt-over in a forest fire several years ago, hence the black bark.
Men from the SWIFT crew (state inmate firefighters) are felling trees and cutting them into rounds, part of a post-fire clean-up and flood-mitigation effort. They fall, we haul.
And I have three more to fall as well on my own place. Next year, no more "just in time" firewood inventory. *
