    What are all my pellet friends dumping into their hoppers? I just brought 2 bags of Somersets up from the basement for the night.

    13::F outside, but -2 windchill now. Going down to about 6::F overnight, and probable wind chills in the minus teens or lower.

    Stove is at 6-7....it's a cozy 70::F inside.

    Dog found her spot in front of the stove about an hour ago. ;lol

    MWP soft are burning away right now. Nice and comfy 65 deg (comfy for me that is :)) on the first floor and rising. Stove is on stove temp/auto set around 5.
    I thought about throwing in some Spruce Pointe but so far no need to.

    Same ole stuff, no need to change they work at least down to -12::F (coldest it has been the last two seasons). It is supposed to get down to -5 ::F according to weather.com but they haven't exactly been hitting well on their forecasts either what it is going to do or how warm or cold it is going to be. I'll believe my thermometer when I see it in the morning.

    Currently 9.5::Fhere.

    Hamers in the castile, tstat setting maxed (will never hit it)
    Got my hamers rocking, was tempted to roll with green teams. If I did I'd have to burn hamers in march, screw that.. Burn something exotic tonight.
    Running on high 74 degrees in the hizzouse.

    May leave it on high overnight, with tstat jacked, probably burn a whole hopper overnight. If I do we should wake up to 70 degrees...

    A 2 bag, 24 hour run...

    Was -10 here last night. I've been burning Pro-Pellets. Forgot all about that ton of Somersets, back in the corner of the barn. To late to get them tonigh, but will for sure, first thing in the morning.
