    About 50 foot of stack.. so 50 x 4.5 x 1.5 / 128 = 2.6 cord or so.. but that includes what is on the porch rack, maybe a rick or so.. and as others have said.. house was much warmer than before wood heat. Can't guess what it would have cost to keep it as warm and comfy with the heat pump.. We started burning in late Oct, guess we will be done by 1st of april. Let the HP take care of any coolness from there.

    3 cords here. I'm conserving the last of my wood for this year now which is about half a face cord. I've been letting the house get cooler and only running the stove at night. Wish I could use some of the 6 cords CCS in the yard but its all too wet to burn this year. Next year should be a much more comfortable year for me.

    Same temps floating around here. This winter is a bit of a rude reminder that the last few winters were unusually easy around here. This will be an 8 month (possibly 9 - I've had fires in June in past years) heating season for us - just weekend burning though. No idea how many cords other that to say I freed up a couple smaller pallets - side by side they're probably a bit more than a full cord but that's just a very loose guestimate.

    Still burning . . . and still have no idea of how much wood I've burned. Far less than I anticipated.

    Add a bit of wind to that and it sure makes for a nasty March break.

    Where are you in Tug Hill? Drive throug there all the time, from Adams to West Road to Whetstone Gulf. Have read that there are Hemlock in Tug Hill that are over 400 years old -- huge old trees. Some of the few trees in America that were here when the European settlers came....Have you ever seen them? Do you know where they are?

    I am down the road from Barnes Corners, you drive right by on Rt 177. I do not know where there are 400 year old trees, but there may be. Tug Hill is fairly expansive. I'll have to ask some of the old time hunters, fishermen, and trappers; they may have some insight.



    I went one week ago, it was great. However, it got up to 50 last weekend, with rain and wind. There is still plenty of snow in the woods, on main and secondary trails. We just got about 4" of snow last night. I would imagine there are some slushy areas on the trails, but definately rideable. I don't know if they're still grooming, but should be. It's supposed to be cold right through the weekend, too. Lows down to +10::F.

    MODS: Sorry about the thread hijack, I don't seem to have a PM capability on my computer. Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    I'm going to guesstimate right about 3 1/2 cords. I've been laid off this winter and kept a fire going in the garage a lot of the time or I wouldn't have burned but a little over 2.

    Oil= Only a few bottles of husqvarna 2 stroke mix, and whatever I replaced from my Ford leaking. ;lol

    So far the Vogelzang Performer used 8 ricks or what some call face cords. 4'x 8' x 18" long splits.

    Never turned the baseboard electric on.

    Thursday is the 1st day of spring. Someone told me that last year we were @ 20 deg C (unseasonably warm) for the start of Spring. This year, we'll probably hit 0 deg C for a high, with snow all week. Shoveled the driveway today. No sign of grass (2 or more feet in the yard, snowbanks taller than me at the end of all the driveways on my street). I don't even know where my shorts are. What a roller coaster year for weather....

    I am going to finish the season in the next couple weeks with about 3.5 cords burned heating 24/7 since mid December. 1700 sq bi-level heated with our insert and used <100 gallons of oil for hot water and supplemental heating.
