    Using up the 12 bags of stove chows I have left, the LG's are waiting in the wings for more consistent cold temps.......it's good to be warm though

    Still burning GS it's cold out 20 with wind that cuts to the bone . Bumped the stove up to medium when I get up ( house was 75 ) by lunch wife was complaining it was to hot so back down to low house holding steady at 77 . For the bad rep these GS get they are working fine for me . I'll save the softies for when it gets realy cold !

    I only bought 10 bags of GS to try them out and they are just fine. I'd buy them by the ton in the future. It was toasty in my house last night.

    Right now my thermometer says 7.2 outside and 72 inside. I cant tell you what I'm NOT burning....#2 Home Heating Oil. It's just sitting in the tank, wondering if I forgot about it.

    MWP sofites, but these are my shoulder pellets. I haven't had the chance to pick up my thoroughbreds and I'm feeling the hurt.

    14 degrees this morning, Still burning Greene Team hardwood. My only concession to the cold has been to push the flame height setting to its maximum. The MVAE has been doing a great job of keeping the first floor of the house at 70 degrees.

    Burning the last of my MWP softies, about 18 bags left. So far this year burned 22 bags, did I mention I am winterized.

    New Mexico Just finished up an arctic blast out of the east combined with a storm cell out of the west that decided to meet up and battle it out over the entire state. East Coast, It's coming your way.
    Our stove worked real hard to keep us warm and worked like a champ. We ran steadily at 75% of max pellet feed rate 24hrs a day for 3 days. We used our stash of Heatr's softwoods which did well for the price we paid.

    Switched back from hamer's to cheat river, the artic blast is over for our area for a few days it was 13deg here this morning, only going to 30 tonight, and 40 tomorrow with lots of rain. I'm glad this storm isn't going to be snow for us, now for the guys up north that's a different story.
