    This entire week its supposed to below freezing during the day and in the teens and low twenties all week. All of that hard work earlier in the year is now paying off. This is what in the summer months I look forward to. I am happier than a pig in slop. Both stoves are firing on all cylinders, and house is really nice and toasty.

    We've had 8"+ of snow, then 4" more. Mon. night they are calling for freezing rain. Yep, we've got plenty of slop but I ain't no pig, dammit! :mad: [Wife might beg to differ...] ;lol

    Nice, looks nice & toasty! Not that cold here but I'm finally able to break into my locust pile and try it out. Can you describe the installation/chimney on that smaller stove? Pellet stove?

    Snow is always better than freezing rain... Nothing expected here for moisture for the next week or more. Nice for wood cutting.

    I have been asking for this weather for the last year and a half and finally got it. Had 2 inches of snow Christmas eve, 8 inches Wednesday, and an inch and a half Saturday morning. High temperatures for the last week have not gotten out of the high 30s so have been running the stove 24/7 with 2 or 3 full loads a day, but even with highs in the 30s and lows in the mid 20s daytime house temps are around 90 and temps in the morning after the overnight load are never below 78. This snow messed up my wood cutting. Have a lot of oak trees down from sandy that I wanted to get cut before spring so it would have a full 2 summers to dry (I know 3 years is better) but can't get to it for the snow.

    It's supposed to be highs in the 20's with night time around zero here for the foreseeable future. We had about 2 feet of snow in 4 days late last week.

    I hope that smaller stove is a pellet stove or I'm waiting for that piece of furniture next to it to burst into flames.

    It was the warmest fall I've seen here in decades. I burned maybe a quarter cord until a week ago. However, this a.m. I arose to find the thermometer at +5 F. Typical early a.m. for the past week or so. I started all three stoves and went back to bed. Two of the dogs followed me and my wife didn't even wake up.
