5 below already, plus some wind. Alternating the insert and the stove now. House toasty.
Well that cold weather is here in the midwest. This will be a good test of your solid fuel heating system, for anyone wanting one. Going down to 5 tonight with a steady 20mph wind. Heck we might just be in a warm spot compared to others.
Hibbing MN weather, nasty!
Partly cloudy, with a low around -28. Wind chill values between -35 and -45. Northwest wind 5 to 10 mph.
Tuesday Partly sunny and cold, with a high near -7. Wind chill values between -35 and -45. West wind around 5 mph.
It's 9 degrees right now. Winds aren't bad, only 5-8 MPH.
These bodies of ours are amazing things! They adapt so quickly to climate. When "I" was in Maine (above Caribou), I could withstand much lower temps and more severe winters than I can endure now, here in CT.
But give me a year back up there again, instead of my "visits" of short duration, and I'd re-adapt once again.
-10 F. Completely still winds. Beautiful sunrise beginning.
19 degrees here at sunup with a windchill of 6. The 30-NC is choochin. 76 downstairs. 70 up.
just dumped a bag of pellets in the Harman, burning a bag and a half a day, maybe a little more with the cold snap. Have fun lugging all that wood around, cutting, splitting, stacking, I guess its true what they say burning wood will warm you 4 times.
Amen to that!
14 here when the sun starting coming up. The Mag is running like a champ.
Here you go Nate . . . -29 degrees F today in Fort Kent for the low.
Saying the same for Van Buren too. So far only got down to -4* according to my Mom.
It was still 9 at 7am, but winds had picked up to about 15mph. I decided not to look at the windchill, lol. When I got to work, it was 6 F. The lake was doing it's best to keep up warm I guess! Looking like it's going to stick at these temps for the rest of the week, with a lake effect snow warning tonight. As long as the winds stay below 6-8 MPH, I don't care if it snows though.
Tonight Partly cloudy, with a low around -20. Wind chill values as low as -36. Northwest wind around 8 mph.
Wednesday Sunny and cold, with a high near -4. Wind chill values as low as -35. West wind 6 to 10 mph becoming southwest in the afternoon.
Wednesday Night Mostly clear, with a low around -22. South wind around 6 mph becoming calm in the evening.
Thursday Sunny and cold, with a high near 4. Wind chill values as low as -30. Light west wind increasing to 8 to 13 mph in the morning.
My stove has been choochin for 24 hrs straight. Gonna keep on choochin thru saturday or sunday it looks like. Finally choochin steady haha. Im sick of lightin from a cold stove. Glad we finally gettin some cold weather. 76 in the living room when I woke up this morning. Choochin haha
Both wood and Pellet stoves are doing their thing. Its 18 outside and windy, the real feel is 3 . Split level ranch, downstairs is the coldest and its currently at 76, upstairs is much nicer, its 83, hanging out in my shorts. This is what its all about. Whats that noise? not the furnace pal.
Yep. Been cold for 2 days down here on LI as well finally! Finally getting winter and get to actually reallly use the stove. I can't recall ever "wishing" for colder weather before?
Machria, this is what being a wood burner does to me. LOL. Its like planting seeds then reaping the benefits. I worked very hard getting all this wood CSS so now I want to use it. That and I love the cold weather. I spent the better part of today splitting and stacking. My wife thinks im crazy, but hey she married my crazy butt.
I closed the key damper to keep some extra heat from going up the flue. It does make a diference with a hard pulling draft. Toasty t-shirt weather inside.
16 outside right now, wind chill of 3.
Supposed to be 0 or below 'til Friday.
I love this!
Not hearing the furnace turn on is music to my ears.
I'm pretty sure my 100,000BTU furnace couldn't get my house 83 in near 0 degree temps. So the stove doesn't stand a chance in hell.
