    You could always relocate. I drove through at least 6" of crap this morning on the way to work. Last night, I-70 was closed for about 3-5 hrs due to snow, ice, and accidents.

    Yeah I have an insane in-law couple that just moved from San Antonio, Texas, lived in Texas all their lives, to just north of Colorado Springs last month. Boy are they in for a surprise. At 86 years of age. <>

    Remember Spring was pretty cool there for a while and peeps were burning well into it.
    The cold weather will come soon enough. The ocean water here last week (cuz I wuz in it, surfing) seemed colder than normal for Sept.
    But seems to have warmed up again at the 20 mile buoy -- water temp there is now 67.5 °F

    Bless this nice weather is what I say when we have great weekend weather in October. It will be cold soon enough. Enjoy the sunshine if you've got it. I know it did this weekend. The wood stove can wait for another week or two.

    We fired up some food in the oven last night and got the house back up to 67. Now we're back into some warmer temps for at least a week. :) I'm in no rush to start eating into my wood stash just yet....

    In the 60s today. We have had yo-you weather for over a year. Warm one day, freezing the next. Lots of rain.

    We are in a long dry spell, finally some rain today. Top soil is literally turning to dust.

    We have been in a cold wet windy spell since mid September. Now since the temps have been going below freezing instead of getting rain we are getting snow. I wish it would warm up here and stay there at least until mid-December. Started burning 24-7 about 2 weeks ago I am not ready for it yet.

    You can keep the rain. Well actually the garden and the flowers — Montauk Daisies in major bloom right now — need it.

    And there's yer clue. Sandyland ... Lawnguyland ... it's sandy, and it got hit by Hurricane Sandy, and that was the source of most of my scrounge.

    Still nothing here. I did finish the stove and do two break in burns but that was it, ther than using the fireplace once while watching the Sox.

    Next few days we have mid 60s day/50s night, then it takes a big dip to the 40s/20s a couple days then supposedly back up to the 60s.

    At this rate I probably wont get into a burn rythm till Thanksgiving time. Typical here and OK with me since I dont have enough wood to go straight through from Oct-Apr anyway (nor the need with NG so cheap)

    Warm is fine with me. It got cold too early last year and ate a half cord of this years stash.

    I'm surprised you haven't been colder up there, Jeremy. We've been seeing lows in the 30's every night for the last week, with highs 45 - 55F. I've been burning overnight loads every day, and even a couple of morning loads.

    A warm front hit us yesterday, tho, and we'll be seeing highs upper 60's (maybe even 70) the next two days.

    Also, spring took forever. I don't think I recall such a cool April/May... and even June.

    Oh we did have overnight lows dip into the 30s in the last week but now it warmend up again. Daytime highs were still in the 50s/60s though so not worth lighting up for me. Since I have the cheap NG I save the wood for days that are low 40s or below.

    Im about 15mi from the Ocean as the crow flies so I think that moderates my temp a bit relative to W mass.
