You know how it is.
If you leave something of any value outside and don't have it bolted down, someone will steal it.
Sometimes even bolting it down isn't enough.
But I can think of one exception.
A Spokane store I visit several times a week displays its bundles of firewood outside. To the best of my knowledge, the store managers don't do anything to secure the wood overnight.
And yet it doesn't all just disapper in the back of someone's truck at 3 a.m. Maybe a bundle or two get ripped off now and then. But if it was a problem that really cut into profitability, I suspect the firewood would soon find a home inside the grocery's lockable doors.
So what's the deal?
All I can think is that the population of people who burn firewood skews honest and honorable.
Can't prove that, of course.
But I have yet to come up with another explanation.
Too early to be even thinking about such things?
Not if you are a feverish fireplace-fuel gatherer who aims to amass a wall of wood and regards same as a shield against the season.
Have you ever been obsessed with gathering firewood?
