    Overnight low here was 2F. Been loading hardwoods mixed with pine for days now, since we aren't getting out of the teens during the day. But still haven't heard the oil burner that much and the wood was mostly free so I am ahead of the game.

    I'm surprised about that. It gets pretty darn cold on Mauna Kea.

    I'm in a room at 77 degrees right now. It is comfortable to me (nice and dry). What stinks around here is the humidity in the Summer.

    I had 34* just a bit ago, We had a spot or rain about 10-11 last PM
    Down Ninilchik way..
    On the bluff above Deep Creek.
    We got to minus 10 up here last week.
    A buddy 4 miles inland had 24 below.
    England 13 going 24/7 since Oct.
    When it was -10 there was a morning or two I heard the Toyo kick on, that gets me out of bed in a hurry.
    We have burned less than $100.00 of oil in the last 2 winters.

    -18 here last night when I went to bed around 1:00 AM, -12 here this AM around 9, then rose dramatically to... 0 for the day. But it's stayed within a couple degrees of that until now, and is gradually rising until we get a very welcome balmy stretch of 20 or so tomorrow.

    Would have been OK if the power hadn't failed for three hours in the early morning hours. My boiler has struggled all day to get the house temperature back up from around the mid-40s where it fell while I was sound asleep, so I've idiotically had to resort to using both the boiler and the tiny stove, and a couple of electric heaters in distant rooms, to maintain a minimally acceptable temperature in the mid-60s. (grrrrr)

    I do envy you guys with the big stoves. My tiny one does what I need down to the low single digits, but after that it just can't keep up, even packed full with high-BTU wood and that fabulous draft of the low, low temps.

    Thanks! It had come and gone by the time I got up, and I'm really glad for that.
