Rejas redux

Posted on

Anticipating our first delivery of firewood (a ton of red eucalyptus), I took a couple of the rejas to our local metal guy Daniel. A few spot welds later, I can stack firewood (leƱa) without fear of blocking the only electrical outlet (tres en linea) in the carport – vast improvement over the rickety wooden frame I used previously.

Whenever the firewood gets around to arriving, that is.

In Spanish, esperar means to wait, and to expect, and also to hope. To a northern North American, that seems hopelessly imprecise. To someone in Uruguay who ordered firewood two days ago for delivery today, its level of precision seems about right.
