    Had my first snow yesterday, and it's currently snowing today. Highs are only going to be in the 30's, low this morning 22. Winds are blowing hard.

    Fired up the stove yesterday, reloaded with red oak before work at 1pm, came home from work at 1230am to a 76 degree house and a 300 degree stove with nice big coal chunks inside to get fire going again. Love it! :cheese: Looks like I'll be burning 24/7 for a few days.

    Snow on the roof and the back deck last night. Fired up our very inefficient fireplace. Wife opened up the glass doors to feel the warmth. Heard the furnace kick on during the middle of the fire. I'm going to have wood-stove envy reading the posts on this site until our new house gets built in a year or so.

    10+ inches and still going strong just a few miles north of us, white outs and nearly 5 inches here so far. The lake effect machine is fired up and so is my stove 24/7. Now if the boat wasn't still in the water it would be perfect.

    We're getting our first snow and it's a big one. +12" so far with wind and it's heavy and wet. It will be gone next week and I'll be able to rake leaves again...yippie! Lows in the 20's and the stove is working nicely except for that new stove smell.

    Had about 2 inches aof really nasty snow yesterday - heavy, wet, and blowing hard. Leaves haven;t even changed. Started the WWL, just about cooked the house (indoor temp went from 59 to 76 in about 2 hrs).

    Of course, I don't even have all the wood processed yet (been cut and stacked a long time, just now splitting it).

    Oh well. Here's hoping for indian summer.

    Lake effect snow hit Buffalo with a record early storm. 22" at the airport between Thurs. & Fri. 400000 without power.

    And it's not even mid-October. I could never live there. I like to visit snow, but not live in it.

    Man...bad news in Buf. The leaves are still on the trees up there and all that extra weight means limbs on power lines.

    I was born and raised about 75 miles south of Buffalo and I do not miss those winters!!

    I'm in Buffalo this weekend and beyond for my job. There is a LOT of wood on the ground, and I would say it's mostly hard wood Excellent for you scavenger types!!!
