    4 tons should just fine if your home is fairly well insulated. Just keep the stove clean.

    Old Farmers Almanac prediction:
    "The new Old Farmer's Almanac is out, with weather predictions through October 2013.
    Although its projection is for this winter to be generally cold and dry, snow is in the forecast for the second half of December for the Atlantic Corridor from Richmond, Va., to Boston.
    "The snowiest periods will be in mid-December, just before Christmas, and in mid- to late February," says the Region 2 Forecast.
    These specifics are even given:
    Dec. 15-20: "Rain and snow, then sunny, cold." Dec. 21-25: "Periods of rain and snow, turning cold." Dec. 26-29: "Snow showers, cold."

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]Heck, snow is even mentioned around Election Day (Nov. 6) and right after Thanksgiving (Nov. 22). It's "rain to snow, then sunny, cold" for Nov. 6 to 14, and "wet snow, cold" for Nov. 23 to 25.

    Geography should be factored in, of course, expecting that rain's more likely toward the Virginia end, snow up toward Massachusetts, with Philadelphia in the middle.
    But the publication's national forecast map even calls for a "cold, snowy" winter across much of the South, from Northern Texas to Georgia and up into Virginia.

    I have 6 cords of 3 year seasoned firewood for the insert downstairs, and 8 tons of Greene Teams for the pellet stove upstairs. I'm ready.

    Well, I hope its true.
    I need to justify all the cutting and splitting.
    Blowing off the oil company is fun too.

    Well, last year it snowed a foot on Halloween - single biggest snowstorm all year, lol. One thing's for sure - it will be winter, and it will be cold. The rest is just details...

    You know, of course, there are only two seasons here in New England; winter and July.

    I don't care what the Almanac says Wisconsin rewrites the book to her liking anyway:eek:. 4 ton on hand grabbing another this weekend. Us snowplow drivers like to be warm in the cab and in our homes.
