    Not done burning yet but the volume of wood used is way down compared to a month ago. That's always a good sign of springtimes approaching warmth!

    Still not done. Thought I was going to hold it at 2 cords this year but brought in the first rack over 2 cords last night with winter storm Saturn hitting us today with 6-12". Last March, even though unusually warm, we had 21 of 31 days above 65* with 7 days at 80*+. So last year the stove was shut down and the a/c was turned on one year ago this month. Looks like an extended shoulder season this year.

    I'm burning just a few logs of sycamore overnight to take the chill off, not starting the fire until late evening, and not reloading. No fire at all a few nights last week, Wed, Thurs. Fri., and Sat. Spring showers moving in over the weekend and temps getting lower. More evening fires expected this week.

    Nope - will be at it into May, but using less than expected. The good weather has allowed wood cutting to commence early!

    While I was writing the last one some dumb nut gave his car gas and hit a tree and kept right on going. I walked out to see what the noise was and the idot was going down the road very slow.
