another burning season today, one week later than 2011, and nearly 3 weeks later than 2010. The solar heaters have covered heating needs easily until today, without even turning on their fans. Since I had so much wood left over last season, I made my "burn pile" storage area 20% smaller this year. Hopefully that won't backfire on me. It's really nice to have a fire going again. A reborn pyromaniac every year!
