So there I was...approaching the burning season and realizing that I only have about 3 cords of seasoned dry wood. I am less than a man....I have been lazy and allowed my wood pile to wither. I have been working hard to get ready for next year but that doesn't change the situation for this year. I am gona change the programmable thermostat so it uses more heat pump and less gas....when it comes on burt that means it might be colder around here. Tonight I loaded the stove ( will be 30's tonight) but didn't light it. I figured it was still 68 degrees inside so I could wait.....and then maybe not have to load but once tonight. I cant believe I am stingy with wood. I have I have more wood than my first year of burning but not nearly as much as as I did in years since. Guess I'll be yelling out the back door. " you kids get out of my yard. And stay away from my woodpile."
