    Here's what NEPA is looking at. So far the stove has been rocking, but I played around with the heat pump a bit tonight and was very impressed with the heat it was kicking out, even at 3::F. Glad to see it since it's part of the back-up system now.​

    I gotta thank Bogydave next time he's on! >> Mother Nature, in the high 40's one week, down to almost -40 a few weeks later.

    With these temps heating from the basement can be a challenge with just the wood stove, so we kicked on the Yankee Pellet Stove in the opposite corner, the basement is 81 with the upstairs is 71.

    Heating from the basement is easy-you just need to get a central furnace :cool: Of course I have easy-it only got down to 10 degrees last night. Our kitchen is kind of drafty though (located on the opposite side of the house from the furnace)-gotta convince the wife to get a small parlor stove for up there.

    Woke up this morning to the same temps, basement 80 (ok, 1 degree less) the upstairs stayed the same at 71. With the windchill we came in at minus 30.

    Round two started this morning with a load of beech then I loaded another bag of pellets, I'm thinking it might be colder tonight.

    The last 3 mornings I've woken up to temps ranging from -25 at the warmest, and -31 at the coldest. Wind chills have ranged from -30 to -57 that I've seen.

    -57! :eek: At that point it is no longer wind chill. More like wind freeze to any part of flesh that is foolish enough to be exposed.

    All the weather up here seems to be like that. We have sent a nice artic cold front down to the US. That's not quite the gift that keeps giving now is it...

    Definitely colder than my preferences. You Canadians could have kept that all to yourselves. :)

    Tonights low 1F.

    Looking ahead at the 10 day, this will probably end up as the coldest day of the season. Stove is cranking.
