    It looks that way. High of 54 today (if it even actually gets there), cloudy, and a low of 36 tonight. House was 72 when I won't up as it was warm yesterday. It's down to 70 now and it looks like I'll be lighting up this evening. Since I'm sure I'll be burning in September, maybe I'll still get July and August off!

    I was surprised, too, at how late we burned. It looks like three days ago will have been our last one (small one in the morning), but around here, you never know...

    I'll probably light a small fire tonight to take the chill off the lower level. It's been chilly, cloudy and windy all day. Lower 40's tonight. I'm sure not turning on
    the furnace after having the AC running earlier in the week.

    Boiler is running today, 43* outside. Big change from in the 80s a few days ago. I think we had our 4-5 days of summer... sigh!

    Had a fire last year in June.

    Do you have frost advisories for tonight, Waulie? I see them posted for the other side, where our place is near Rogers City.

    No frost warnings yet. If it's 50 or lower at 9:00 pm, I'm covering what I can!

    Forecast for 33 tonight and tomorrow night. Frost warnings, so we just went and covered stuff after a brief trip to Gaylord.
    Wife said we don't need a fire, but the house temp has been dropping all day (just shut the windows too).
    We'll see.

    NOAA has said patchy frost. I'm not starting a fire tonight but might in the morning.

    Happens darn near every year here. Last year was our first real spring in 12 years. We are just coming off of four days in the nineties with high humidity. Had a fire five days ago.

    I think we might get down in the high 30's tonight, we just might burn up the pine splits we brought in about two weeks ago.

    Did have a light frost this morning. Probably patchy so some got it and some didn't. We did not light a fire this morning either. Temp rebounded to 68 this afternoon and a bit breezy. Actually quite a nice day.

    Yup, I lied. I didn't end up lighting one either. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It was chilly this morning, but not too terrible. As for the frost, my beans say it did not but my cucumbers and zucs say it absolutely did. :mad: Oh well, they just sprouted anyway so I only lost about 12 days. I'm covering the beans tonight!

    Thank you very much guys, it got great use this chilly may near dusk, was able to stay warm as kids toasted marshmallows, was always a shame to put out fire to go inside....Wednesday on my day off it will be fired up, just for the heck of it, and may cook lunch if I am able to get to it...

    I used to have a husky that looked almost exactly like that avatar. If I was to ever get another dog, then I would get that breed. (A stray from the pound)

    I gave in this morning and fired up the Keystone. Only in the 50's yesterday and looks to be the same today.

    Good for you - and all those who rescue / adopt animals. If you can, taking the pooch from the pound to a warm spot by the hearth is a pretty nice thing to do.
