Snort'n Nort'n with big dead elm log: Far wood for next winter

2011-04-09 - Photo by Jim Whitehurst.
Sharon Whitehurst writes: "I don't know if you or your readers recall the saga of the big dead elm which Jim took down on the J.M. Shelley farm just over the Green County line. Jim hauled the butt log home behind ole 'Snort'n Nort'n' this week with plans for it to be sawed out at one of our local Amish mills. Firewood from that noble tree, from other parts of the tree, has kept us warm all winter, with some in reserve for another season." -Sharon Whitehurst
