    We should actually be colder, the temps are from an airport 37 miles away from us. Since we heat from the basement I'll get rid of the longer burn times for fires which will put out more btu's, more of a rolling flame compared to the dancing flame.

    Yeah this morning i had my stove a wee bit hot you could smell it slightly nothing was glowing but i would say it was not far off. My stove thermometers are just about junk this year I still trust my Condar probe.

    We try to stay at 650 stovetop temp on the IR Gun to start with which usually makes our pipe temp hit 500 then back it down to 450.

    For some reason my stove don't send much heat out the pipe. This morning i had the air closed and nice lazy looking fire but the stove smelled different.

    Edit. Sorry it was just a hot smell not really different.

    I have always hated winter, not a good way to be in Northern Alberta Canada, but this year is different. I finally have a job this is only 10 min for home and a brand new Skid Steer c/w 8' wide snow bucket to get the white chit off my driveway. give me the snow and I will get rid of it.

    Man...8 degrees. I remember being up in the Adirondacks when it was around 3 degrees and it felt like 20 here. Drier, I think.

    Looks like 27 is the lowest we're supposed to get, overnight Friday.

    I want last winter back! And again, and again and...

    Three years in a row we set records. I like that last one. Mildest winter ever.

    Say what? I always get grief about not living where it gets cold. We have had a bunch of nights in the twenties already in November. Tonight included. My stacks are shrinking like it is January.

    We hit 18, not real cold for here. The Cherry is still doing the job, the livingroom temp was 70 this morning and the bedroom was 68.7.

    We have some sugar maple along with some nice ironwood for tonight, temps st 8 or below with the strong winds. (25-30 gust)

    Too warm to run the stove.Too many sunny days ahead in the high 40s and 50s. The solar will do the work on those days. Calling for 60 on tuesday.
