As we use mostly wood for our heating we need to top up our supply now and then. This time we went for some 40 quintali. 1 quintale is 100kg.
In large parts of rural italy most things are measured in quintali. Wether it’s olives or wood, quintale is the magic word.
It took about half a day to get the wood in. Only thing left for us is aching muscles.I love my stufa but at certain moments doubts surface. For instance how many times do I handle a piece of wood before it ends up in the fire? All in all I do like jobs like this, it’s simple work with a real goal, not much thinking required.
I’m of now to get some wood from the shed to my house. (Heating a house on wood does make you feel warm!)
