Around here, the winter solstice roughly marks the onset of the coldest part of winter and the one-third point through the heating season. Checking in with my wood supplies, a significant dent hasn't been made in either yet. For the Quad upstairs, as you can see, less than 1/4 of it has been used; and the one for the Nestor Martin in the basement, even less. This is due to a warmer-than-usual late fall, some insulation and berming added this summer, and the contribution of my new passive solar heater. My goal of not even lighting the pilot of the central boiler this year is looking pretty good. How's yours doing?
