Public Service Notice
NOTICE: After ten years, Ol’ Remus is closing out the Woodpile Report.
What’s with the title Woodpile Report? Well, it’s this way, from January of 2004 until mid-2007 it was emailed to a subscibers list. In that form it was titled the Woodpile Weather Report. A picture of ol’ Remus’s woodpile appeared at the top as both a weather report and, by documenting the progression from log pile to chunkwood to a split ‘n stacked woodpile, a witness to the seasonal changes. It was the thin thread from which comments hung. As thrilling as all that was, the comments metastasized and took over. But the title remains.
Hello. I’m stepping out from behind my Remus persona to tell you something directly. Woodpile Report will come to an end soon, a month say, maybe sooner. Yep, jes like that. Gone. Why? Well, it’s been fun. I’ve enjoyed doing it. I’ll miss it. But I won’t miss it enough to keep doing it for ten more years. And I’ve put off other things long enough. So it’s time for ol’ Remus to tap the dottle from his pipe, get his coat ‘n hat and go back to where he came from. I now return you to your regularly scheduled Woodpile Report. Remus, take it away.
UPDATE: The Woodpile Report is back in publication as of November 24, 2015.
