I stopped in early May.
I rarely run the furnace after we stop burning.

I do know what you mean about feeling nice.
Nothing better than wood heat.

It 60*F here, Jurassic Park. It doesn't really want to warm up today so far. I'm kinda high elevation. This way if I take a shower , I don't have to use so much hot water LOL. My water heater is in sorry shape. No, it doesn't leak but it's not the most reliable, it's a little bit like Coonman's Colorado.

It was in the low 40s here Sunday night into Monday morning. My wife asked me to build a chill chaser. I built a fire and she lit it a couple hours before she went to bed. Before she turns in she throws some big stuff on and damps it down. We let it go out during the day.


Eh...wot?

Still in the low 30's at times , so a small fire to take the chill off is nice. Especially on cool wet rainy nights, it is nice. Otherwise, no fire .

90 degrees here , cleaning out the odd lengths that won't fit in my stove and other junk and sending it to the neighbors to burn in their camp fires at night.

have about a cord cut and split on the trailer to put away then I am done with wood till fall , run some star=tron treated gas in my saws and put them away till it is below 40 again.

should have been done 3 weeks ago but right after cutting and loading it on the trailer the DR and my leg forced me to take a few weeks off.

America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Man....must have some thin blood. Being in Virginia figured you wouldve stopped burning in March. Must be like living in a sauna.
