    Just moved another ton from the detached garage to the attached garage.

    I can't believe I have gone through 90 bags already!

    Guess I will be buying another ton!

    I know I started sometime in October but can't say for certain the date.

    Next year I will keep better records!

    Started burning 10/4/2010 and at 64 bags. Last season I burned 65 bags and started burning 10/3/2009. Adding some more insulation and using the plastic on these drafty windows may have helped. Definetly colder this season compared to last.

    I can see my pellet usage going down (hopefully). Change in pellets and these ones I got from HD burn a lot hotter then the others I was using.
    Switched from Lignetics to Stove Chow and I had to adjust my stove setting due to the heat difference!
