Had the first fire of the year last night! I wasn't the only one happy about it.

Thinking of putting an inflatable mattress in my basement so I can do the same!
Really nice. It's been so hot here in NY. I can't wait for the cold weather so I can let my stove roarrrrrrrr
We were getting to -1C the last few nights. I couldn't resist. I think we are in for a really nice week now so back to waiting.
Remkel, there is almost always someone laying or sitting in front of the fire! The kids ate their breakfast in front of it all last winter.
First fire on fireview for year. 50 out and raining. I usually like it a little colder out but is nice.
Not much combuster action with this little bit of wood but is comfortable.
Hard to beat a soapstone stove fire on a cold rainy day.
Hard to beat any wood stove on a cold rainy day!
We've had a few fires but looking at the forecast it does not appear we'll be having another one this week. This is amazing that we aren't burning in October. No doubt, it will catch up to us.
I know Dennis is hard to believe the temps but we will take it.
I hope all is well and you have been able to get out hunting some.
You are right there Sappy about the temps.
Sad that I have not yet been able to hunt. Hopefully will be able to get some done this week. We've had a few problems plus a close friend who is fighting a hard battle. We'll get through it.
Hope you have the wood put up for the boiler for next spring!
Dennis, you're absolutely right. Any wood stove would feel great on a cold rainy damp day. My response was a direct reply to a post made by Sappy who just happened to be using a soapstone stove. I was just trying to personalize it.
50 and rainy sound like awesome conditions for a fire to me.
First lights of the season.
It's looking good nice stoves
Good thing you have different hearths, or you might forget where you are. I like your stove-in-a-closet pics.
Same day start up for me also, Nice damp NJ weather here.
Both fireplaces are the same width, with similar mantels and doors, one all original, the other mostly reproduction. The real trouble is that one opening is 5-1/2 feet high, and the other is only 4-1/2 feet high. I catch the back of my head on that lower lintel standing up too quick, several times each year, and can tell you that beam has zero "give".
Still the biggest fireplaces I have ever seen. It would be interesting to see a BKK in one, since there aren't mamy fireplaces where one would fit, but those Jotuls look 'right'.
Sharp looking !! I love the doors
Pondering firing the PE as I type, damp as all get out here.
Nice Joful... I look at those shots and the stoves look so small, I have to remind myself that the F12 is a BIG stove to get the scale of it...
That lower skull cracker would mess with me also, I'd tend to it first increasing my odds with the higher one 2nd
Beautiful! I usually start before October 1, but have held out so far and will probably do so for another week. A combination of warm days and not wanting to waste the wood/effort when I can run a little heater.
Kind of surprised that you lit off. I'm further north of you and it's 60 outside here.
I love the look of those fireplaces with those big honkers in them.
Lit a little one in the pellet basket in the 30 tonight to knock the chill off of the joint in this rainy weather.
