I burn two to three cords depending on the weather, I keep two to three years at the ready and curing and hold a separate stash for camping firewood and fire-ring use of about a cord.
I maintain fireplace, stove cut firewood and kindling in a separate stash by my processing area as well as barrel stove heat at the sawmill for those cold days.
All together for a years worth is close to 4 or 5 cords for the works including lots of camp fires.

No pictures, but I think I've burned about 7 cords at the cabin this year. Since the insulation was installed, much less to maintain the heat. I think I'll keep burning for another six weeks, at least.

Snowed here yesterday and today, very unusual. The snow is almost all gone but it is predicted to be well below freezing tonight. Went a few days with the stove off but had to light it this morning. Should be able to let it go out tomorrow or Monday latest. Had to cut wood for tonight, haven't got any for next year yet. Keep looking up everywhere I go. I am coveting a neighbours vacant lot that had a lot of blow down two years ago. There are a lot of dangerous trees hung up in others looking nice and dry. I am hoping he wants them brought down and taken away. Here's hoping.

I have enough to fill the stove 2-3 more times, and last night it was -15C.  Better go cut some in the morning.

Still 2+ feet of snow in the bush, might be one of those years we dont start planting till June. But it might be gone in a week and planting the next.

I have about 19 Full Cords left.  Last year I was done getting 8 cords by May 1st.  This year with the snow sticking around and muddy trails I didn't get going till first week of May.  I need to replace about 8 cords.  Still have about 4 to go plus stacking.
