    Cold the past couple of nights.
    My wife called me at work today and said its friggen freezing in the house.
    Feels good to start another wood burning season. Last year my wood wasnt really seasoned enough. Now I have plenty of good burning wood.

    This has nothing to do with wood burning, but I lived in Orange County for a few years....at West Point (USMA) when I was a kid. Stilll one of my favorite places ever. Beautiful country. Sometimes chilly though!

    We've been burning for a week down in Croton. Snowed down here too!. West Point is at about the most beautiful part of the Hudson River.
