    Keep her warm Mike. They are better that way.

    We're supposed to be in the teens tonight so we'll be stocking up the stove before hitting the sack.

    The Dairy Barn opened back up last weekend. I was able to hold the girls off all week, but I gave in tonight. Sitting here finishing my banana malt, waiting for tonight/tomorrow's load to char. Kinda silly, standing there shivering while waiting for our ice cream.

    I wish I could give some of my heat to the neighbors. I'm sure they would gladly take it. I can only imagine what they are thinking when they see my walking around the house in shorts and a t-shirt when they are dressed for the north pole >:-(

    It got cold here last night! I left for work at 6:30 am and got home to 28° outside, a cold stove and a 58° house at 11:30 pm. Had a blazing fire within 15 minutes and had it back in the 70s when I left at 7 am today. Wood heating is hard to do when the family is away and I am at work for 17 hours. At least I'll have some warm coals when I get home after midnight tonight.

    We're back in the 40's today. Sunny but very windy. Nice in the woods.

    Night time temps in PA are exceeding our daytime highs. We probably won't see regular 70's until May or June. And that is if we don't repeat the la nina chill of the past two years.

    I'm letting my fire go out today. Forecast lows are around 50 for the next few days, so the 24/7 thing is done. I love my wood stove, but I'm always glad when the season is over.

    Only burned 2 nights this month. Looks like I'm done for the year. Supposed to be 80 the next couple of days here.

    I have been out for a week and a half. Today I could light to take the chill off but I am just going to let the furnace take over. 65+ tomorrow and maybe 75+ next week. I may be done. I have a cord that I didn't even touch...

    Earlier this week was neary 70 and sunny; today we're back to 40 and raining. Got a fire going now and will likely keep it going through the weekend...hearing more 70's next week though!

    80s here for the next week, redbud popping, tulips up, ticks out (luckily no deer ticks yet.) Looks like it's about over. Now I'll have to move all this wood off the porch...

    Had a fellow tell me today that the mosquitoes are terrible at his place and he lives only about 7 miles from us. None here and I hope it stays that way. The skeeter patrol guys say the hatch should be about 3 weeks early this year which puts it in April sometime.

    We've had fantastic weather and even missed the storms yesterday. We saw 81 two days ago and 78 yesterday. Today is around 70 but feels much warmer because the humidity is high. I'll be leaving for bike ride in a little bit!

    We've got mosquitoes, wasps, and highs in the upper 70's today. There's no cool weather in sight for the next week. I know we probably have
    some stove nights sometime ahead, but it sure is weird wearing shorts and flip flops in mid-March in Wisconsin.
