Ha!, my wife wants the house kept cooler and COLD at sleep time. It's never perfect enough.

Just dumped #37 into hopper today. Was 28 °F last night at 11 PM.
Holy crap... I thought I was cold blooded. 82 would run me out of the house. 75 is plenty.
Just dumped in #25 of my Uncle Jed's. 3 tons left plus 2 tons Somersets. If we have a mild winter should be enough left for next season! :cheese:
I have a very busy life as i am sure many of you do as well. so how do you guys keep track of the bags you have burned ????
This year I decided to keep track. Every time I put one in the hopper, I mark it on a calendar that I keep a few feet from the stove. I keep a running total. 27 bags so far.
I am now at 23 so far. Only 150 plus to go till spring!
I am standing at 10 bags burned and 90 left. I didn't need to burn the 10 other than the wood heat is so much warmer feeling it is hard to leave it off. When you have 32,000,000 btu at your disposal it is hard to not partake of some of them.
On bag #6. It's been warm enough to shut the stove down during the day. My wife likes it cool. I'm on blood thinners and like it a bit warmer. We comprimise at 68. I would prefer 72+ (but not 82 )
8 Penningtons so far. Saving the Sommersets for later. Okies for really later when I real cold, like late January
Bag 18 temp in low 20's rest of week
Bag 25 going in tonight. First fire of the season was Oct 15.
10 bags left today on last year's pallet, one "waiting in the wings" and one about to go in the stove after I wax the hopper. Gonna see how well I can get them to slide. I still need to buy some high heat metal tape to cover the spots that dip in around the auger... but that's another topic.
bag 24 for my household... Mixing Green Team and Potomacs together
I store mine in the cellar, every time I bring one up I mark it in a notebook, then I just have to know whats in the hopper and in the bucket to get my burned total.
I have 1 ton pallets, each layer is 5 bags, I just count the layers left and odd bags on a layer.
Two! 1 bag of maine choice from strong 1 bag of maine wood products from athens. So far i like MWP bag
that's my method too.
2 so far.
The 3rd is in the hopper.
Stove hasn't been on in a few days.
70 °F right now with 30 mph winds from the south.
27... about to add 28.
Less than 10 bags.
But just yesterday it finally dipped below 20F. This morning when I got up the truck said it as 11F outside.
This stove is amazing.
35 so far, but stove is our only heat source. Wife likes it warm, so what do you do? I hang out in the garage.... Got some good hiding spots out there. :coolgrin:
Just like me, I tell the wife I am counting how many bags I have left. Think I might just do that tonight :cheese:
just counted and so far i have went threw 20 bags since 10/23/10.
