    Been burning off and on for several weeks, and now have the last of 2011-2012 wood in the indoor woodbox. Less than half of 2012-2013 moved from the stacking yard to the woodshed. Recalling a very damp Fall of 2011, I added tin so the cover overhangs about one foot each side of the stacks still outside.

    Outside temp at 33 and falling, expect to bottom out below 24. Had to double-cover the pumpkins and drain the pasture waterlines. Only one night of cold, so not bringing in the watering system for the winter just yet.

    You must own an inn or b&b. Hope to come up your way for ski season. How much wood do you burn per season?

    It is just a big old house. We burn about 8 cord (full cords).

    After last year's poor snowfall a lot of people are hoping for a better ski season. We live 20 minutes from the closest area, and within an hour of at least 8. Several reports of stray flakes the past couple of days, but I haven't seen any snow yet this fall.
