    Still at least one burn every day. It gets down to the 30s at night and I still don't want the oil burner kicking on. May is when I'll probably be done.

    At this rate I still have plenty of burning ahead of me. I may get my first night off today though if the house got any solar gain. That has me pretty excited. ;lol

    Just one fire per day now. Temp is supposed to go down to -1C this evening. One load of shoulder season wood (fir, spruce, some poplar) this evening should do the job just fine.

    Cheers!

    Surely not done yet but today was utterly fantastic! The forecast said we might hit 60 but we got to 68 degrees! Also had some sun both yesterday and today and that is something we've seen very little of for too long. I hope this means we'll be finally warming up and even not so much freezing at night.

    Thursday is another day forecast to be in the 60's. However, rain/snow Friday night and a high of 44 Saturday. Nope. Not done burning yet.

    Still burning but ran out of seasoned wood a few weeks ago so I've been burning compressed wood pellets (They range from baseball to softball size).
    They burn about 1/4 as long as wood but get the stove up to a pretty nice temperature and the soapstone radiates for hours...
    One fire in the morning, one fire at night, about one 30lb bag a day at $1 per bag and my house is always in the low 70's, I can't complain...

    I am still burning every day or two now but plan to burn through the summer this year I expect to burn every 3-6 days depending on hot water usage.

    Tonight was going to be first night of not burning but got home from boys baseball practice and wife was complaining that the house was at 73. With a low of 45 she said if during the night it got below 70 in the house I was in trouble. So I started a fire in the stove

    I think I'm done for the season - haven't had a fire in a week and a half. It's a little chilly now but I'm not building a fire for a little chill.

    Only when wife wants a fire now. Had one about 5 she started and house got to 80. If I had done it she would have told me about, she done it this time and still told me about it.

    Maybe a couple more loads Friday and Saturday if the weather man is correct. Then I am done because old faithful is coming out. The new Buck 91 will be one the truck Saturday. I am sure I will love my new stove but me and the old girl have been friends for 22 years now.
