    Looked at the weather forecast in my area. 50 degree highs Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with overnight lows around 30.

    Very easy to stay warm with this mild weather.

    This mild weather will probably leave many further ahead on 2012-2013 wood than they thought. Should also save some people money on heating. I'll take both!

    We had a winter exactly like this in 06/07. I put the new stove in in the Fall and sweated us out of the joint all winter playing with it and getting used to burning in it.

    We just decided not to even load the stove in the AM when it's 40 or higher, and I'm not reloading at night either. I don't know how, but we seem to get really good solar gain during the days. Odd year for sure, but it's ok. Good first year with the stove since we didn't have a wood stockpile to start with.

    Firecracker,

    That'd be "Aye, Aye Captain." Where ever did you get "Eye, eye"? Okay, don't tell.

    You might check out Mark Knopfler's "Why Aye Man" which in Geordie usage means "Why sure, man." Great song.

    Hehehehe. I didn't know the correct saying. Just thought it sounded like Eye, Eye!

    Been a pretty ugly winter here so far. Cold and snowy. Got something around 3ft of snow in the last ~3 weeks. Lows down to -20*, highs 10* at best.
