    Not much, 8 bags. Today was first day running all day...but that was more to aid in drying the mud on new wall. :)

    Dumped #5 in this morning.

    I'm about on par for last year. I didn't burn until after we got power back post-snowpocolypse.... so about 11/2 i started last year. This year i dumped a few in for october. Been running on thermostat off and on throughout the night here the past few days..

    Just under 800 lbs/19+ bags. Just like the stoves name...I keep it TOASTY warm! Stove come on at 5am and heats the entire downstairs to 73 then at 8am the t-stat goes down to 71 for all the time we are at home until 7pm then it goes up to 72 until 10:45pm and then auto shut down still throwing heat past 11:15pm....Sure beats the days of the 68 degree t-stat with all oil heat.

    I have to admit, being new to pellet burning, that I was keeping my rooms at about 68 degrees even with the pellets! Then I took a look at my stash and thought "What the H*** am I doing! Why can't I be warm with all these pellets!" so now I'm about 71 - 72 degrees. :cool:

    I've burned about 1/2 a ton so far, but that's also so I can stay away from using oil...

    Dumped #14 in the hopper tonight. Its supposed to get into the 60's here over the weekend until the middle of next week. That will decrease consumption drastically!

    I dumped in bag #29 last night. 120 lb hopper, so by this morning I've probably burned 27-28 bags.
