    It's starting to snow here as well,,, the Fireview and the Esse are just cruising along.. what a nice feeling to be burning wood, knowing no matter what the weather brings,,, we'll be warm... We're looking to get 20 inches here in the mountains. They're saying we could see 3 inches an hour at times... along with high winds... I'm expecting white out conditions for a while..

    Wednesday night, 8:40PM, snowing lightly here in north central Mass. 27'F but it feels colder. Only the Acclaim going in the family room, as the wifely unit has converted the top of the monster in the living room into a religious display. But all will be back to normal after New Year.

    We are supposed to be getting 12 inches then turning to rain mid afternoon tomorrow. I've got the Ariens in the garage which is totally up to the task at hand.

    Snowing hard and fast here now...about an inch of the wet slushy slippery stuff so far. Just got back from driving in it....I love my jeep! The house is nice and toasty at 72 degrees, just letting the stove die down for the night

    Good Lord thats a lot of snow. I have been asking for snow and now we are getting it. Just came back in from shoveling the snow and ice. Its 26 out and Ice is falling, came back in and it was soooo nice. best feeling to see my family hanging by the stove watching tv and eating cookies. something very quaint about that picture. Nothing says holidays and winter like the sight of kids intently watching tv and eating home baked cookies. Call me old fashioned but it makes me feel real good to see my kids doing what I only saw on tv and books as a kid.

    Nice cub cadet!! We've been stalking a Gravely with a snow thrower attachment but it's a sticky situation involving neighbors and estates...I really wish we would have gotten it kicked over at least at this moment, lol.

    Snowing here. NOTHING but goverment offices close for anything short of feet of snow here so I left work at my normal time and will be going in tomorrow...much rather be tending the stove!

    It is a good feeling to be heating the place with wood. Neighbors do too, so we're not anyone's back up plan either :D

    No other real wood burners near me. But there are quite a few generator owners. My neighborhood had an extended power outage over the last two Halloween weeks.

    We have about six inches on the ground here in central PA, and something that seems like sleet or freezing rain is falling. They are calling for us to stay on the snow side of the snow/rain line. I am burning our best very old Red Oak firewood.

    Thanks Kat, it's been home since '79. I think there's going to be a Fireview where that Garrison is sometime in the future.. but that one keeps us warm on the coldest of days. I've got a older VC Resolute Acclaim in the family room/finished basement that I keep cruising 24X7 and that does the trick for all those days over 20'F.

    We have a lot of pellet stoves in the neighborhood. I believe me and one neighbor with a wood boiler are the only two wood burners left. I have a generator, but it is good to know that I do not absolutely need it to keep the house warm.


    Edit: oh yeah, it's snowing here too. The kids are ecstatic!

    A couple inches here already - forecast calls for a few more but then perhaps a mess of ice, rain and snow on thurs.
