    73 °F . Been having a fire in the morning and evening. The new little kitchen Hampton is perfect for this weather. I thought I would only burn it to take up the slack in that part of the house that is hard for the old Buck to get to. But the old Buck is just to much heat this time of the year, so I tried the little Hampton......perfect. The old Buck can rest until it gets colder. :)

    Small fire last night. 55 outside today and sunny. House is still 70 due to cooking & solar gain. No fire tonight ...and surly the beast will kick in around 5am to keep the house comfy (just for 1hr or so). Again calling for 56 tomorrow so maybe a fire in the evening. I have gone through 1/3 the wood I normally do by Nov 1st!!! I like it since all I have is hardwood & it pains me to burn it now. Global warming....or is it cyclical?

    85 in stove room right now. 30 outside. Had it up to 525 stovetop with 3 med pieces and shut down to around 1. I don't always like the flame going out and coming back to a few ploofs of flame, so I opened it up a small amont for light steady flame. Prob here is if I add a couple pieces now it will be at 90 soon. Do have a fan as mentioned at ground level blowing into stove room and does help move heat out. The next morning cause I don't need to load crazy at these temps there will be no big hot coals so I basically will have a cold start at 5am.
