    That's weird Pete. It is windy here but not all that bad. I don't think it is much stronger now than earlier in the day.

    I just brought in 3 splits to put in the stove. Was wondering if I would be able to or not though as it is really warm in here. Not burned much wood today but house has stayed really warm. Humidity has raised a lot though because wife did laundry.

    We got some pretty heavy wind here but then I don't have too much to block it around us. I loaded it up cuz it was chilly in the house eairlyer. One thing is for sure Dennis that insulation makes a huge difference ! We used to feel the air blowing in every crack of the house but not now.

    Insulation rocks! Looked on NOAA and mostly winds gusting to only 24 mph. Probably get interesting tomorrow.

    Been a pretty consistent 20-25 mph here since last evening. Its picking up a bit more in the last hour or so. Just had a good gust a few minutes ago that made the house creak and all three dogs sit up.

    It is a little unnerving to stand on the hearth and feel the whole thing shake.

    You burning your stove or furnace?
