    Hey, I was fine with it staying in Canada. But we need the moisture bad.

    2" of the white stuff on the ground and more coming down. 74::F upstairs, just right for a nap before my phone rings and I go into plow mode.

    How are your flamingos holding up considering the conditions?

    They say we might get a wintry mix this evening and changing to rain tomorrow, maybe, depending and such.

    I turned the stove off at 8:30am to clean it. 8 hours later the stove is still off and it's 71 in my living room.

    First time it's been over 0 in a month I believe. Stove still needed a bag this morning, but usage should drop down to 1.5 bags a day for 2-3 days, then back to -20. Its a smoking hot 4* out right now.

    However, it's snowing, and I'll take -20 over snow any day -_-

    Really? I am just the opposite. Snow is a blast.......but -20??? There is nothing remotely fun about that. But, I'd rather be outside than inside.

    9 degrees 15 inches of blowing snow- no visibility- all highways are closed in Minnesota. Stove is faithfully doing its duty burning two year old Indeck pellets. House is a cozy 72 degrees with the Bixby idling.

    Got 8" of snow since Friday night. Today's high was 9° and it has dropped to 4° on its way to a predicted low of -8°. Shut the stove down at 10:50 this morning and started it back up at 4:10 this afternoon. Currently 71° in the house.

    Pretty close to 6" of wet heavy stuff. A few miles in any direction they got half that, just lucky I guess. Going down to the low teens tonight.

    11 below this morning, the wind went down though. On track to use less than 60lbs for a day. Nice to have the 1500 sq/ft of heated floor as a heat bank.
