    One side the thermometer reads -10°f
    Other side -3°f
    7° warmer on one side is nice, still cold, but noticeable.
    Getting 7° from the sun now :)

    Last year (full season) 5-1/2 cords. 1st year with the new BK-k & cat. Old stove was about 10 cords.
    This year I'm using more, maybe 6+ cords by the end of burn season. Colder than average winter for my location.
    Was -20°f last night. to get into the teens Sunday night, maybe 20s next week, more normal for here. (40° temp increase) :)

    10.7 degree sun angle, crap, no wonder it's so freakin cold up there. Thanks for the info, I find it fascinating. Oh yeah, & throw another log on the fire too. A C

    The low angle is annoying, gets right in your eyes while driving. I work an afternoon shift and for the last couple weeks it's been pretty bad.

    That is just crazy. The beauty of the land is simply not enough draw for me to put up with that kind of extremes, however. I am currently 101 degrees warmer than that (48F).
