That's the question I ask my coworkers on days like today. I have a smile on my face when I ask it. And they know it means I didn't. Surface temp on the stove right now is about 400-450. Got the blower on high and a nice fire going inside it. I'm getting ready to head outside ans swing the axe for about 30-45 minutes. Get some exercise and process some firewood all at the same time. When it gets really cold and stays that way, I'll probably turn my furnace on and set it for about 63 just incase the fire burns down at night. Everyone laughed at me 3 years ago when I pulled the gas logs out of my fireplace, had the pipe disconnected at the other end of the house, and put in an insert. Nobody's laughing anymore. Some have asked me how they can do the same thing. Most will buy their wood because they lack the time or desire to cut/split their own but they sure are looking at doing something with that wood. I keep expecting to se an end to the hardwood that gets dumped at our landfill, but everytime I go to take a load of brush I see almost a full pickup truck of elm, oak and hickory tossed on in with the brush that's been dumped there. From time to time, I will pick up the most manageable pieces and toss them in my truck bed. I understand not wanting to do all the work involved in wood burning and I know many people's lives are just to hectic to do it. But most people sit on their butt every night watching the tube and I can't grasp sitting there feeling chilly every night when it's so easy to change things so that you can sit around in shorts and a tshirt even in the dead of winter.
