    I guess some up there noticed the Natural Gas futures and decided to get prepared now.

    One interesting thing about Hearth.com - we can put our finger on the exact pulse by looking at the site traffic. Every year, it appears that July 15 is the turning point....that is when traffic starts heading up quickly!

    Days are getting shorter - there is something instinctive telling us that the cold will come again!

    That's funny. Hearth.com, the barometer of wood heating trends since 1996.

    I spend a big chunk of my summer getting ready for winter, i.e., cutting wood.

    Same here. Also spent some time building another coal bin. I've increased our capacity to about 5 tons now. That means we only need a delivery once every two years, maybe even less than that. Best part is that all lumber was recycled from pallets and other scrap!

    For the "wood" burner the season never seems to end . We had a mild December so a lot of the wood was cut then ( normally spring/fall ), of corse it dont stop there . Thinking about wood for 12 months . I think about A/C for 1 week in the spring as all A/C units get cleaned , checked , updated .
