    Just dumped in bag #9. It has been a very mild fall - we lost power during Sandy, I had my battery backup ready to be tested for the first time and it never got below 70.

    I ran through 15 in October, and just loaded my 4th bag for November. So it's 19 for me so far!

    Lost the list I had started but probably around 20. I think I started burning in early October when we had a few very cool nights.

    9 Bags so far, New woodstove installed yesterday so most likely will diminish the pellet use

    Since I just HAVE to have the hopper full at all times, I put bag #8 in the hopper last night. So I have burned less than 7 bags so far. With a 2 month old, I think I am doing pretty good!

    Around 12 after this morning's load up. Been using Hardwood Heat which are fine for temps above 30 or so (they're pretty ashey). Tried some Somersets which burn nice and got but a little faster than I remember. But way less ash than the Hardwood Heat.
