Up here Downeast(on the coast near Ellworth, Maine) the temperatures have been the next months temps all during the fall and into the winter. Right now we are having historical temperatures that are typical of the third week in December not the fourth week in November. Just imagine what kind of temps it would be if we didn't have Global Warming. Stove runs nice, but I've been working hard to make semi portable R-8 shutters for the windows. Hopefully by january when we have temperatures more like Caribou than the coast, I'll have all my shutters up and done.
