    Going down to 1 degrees F tonight here in the Catskills region of New York tonight. Weather isn't fit for anyone, not even a brass monkey if you know what I mean ! Running plenty of red oak I had stored up for nights like this !

    Yep, I spent 10 minutes outside last night at 10 degrees F without gloves or my heaviest coat on and it was miserable. Mind you, the middle weight coat is no slouch either, but the full on arctic coat has a hood with it (i.e., only difference between the two coats) but it has a bunch of accessories on the inside (e.g., Carhart hat, Under Armour face mask, thin glove liners, thick waterproof gloves). I can spend hours outside in the snow with the heavy coat.

    With that said, burning red oak and locust tonight and just checked on the furnace. I have about 3 to 4 inches of coals in the furnace and the house is a nice 75 degrees. Man, do I love this wood burning stuff.
