Groundhog Day (you know the saying, "half your wood and half your hay...") is traditionally when these threads would start but like everything else, people try to get a jump on it. I need to re-mediate my woodshed so I didn't fill it, choosing instead to leave most of my wood outside. What I have left in the shed is less than half of what I started this heating season with, so "half your wood" does not apply here. I don't plan to pull from my outdoor stacks so if I run short, the gas furnace will take up the slack. Woke up to -34°C this morning and we're in for a few more days of cold. The weather prognosticators are calling for variable cloudiness tomorrow so the Groundhog may not see its shadow.
