    Supposed to get down to 30 tomorrow night!! Major T-storms slated for later today and then the cold front settles in for a few days. Gonna keep running the boiler until night time lows are closer to 50.

    Yea that's where we are at now. Elwood Indiana is hit very hard. This system produces very strong rain! (Your about 24 hrs behind us) When you think it might be letting up it just starts pouring again.

    A fire usually feels good in this old wind-tunnel anytime it's in the 40's at night. I'll probably be starting occasional fires for another month

    Loaded the bin for the last time (again) with logs. Highs of 60 for the weekend, not sure of the lows, but smoke will fly.

    Was on an overnight get away in PA Thursday and Friday. Thursday in shorts and a short sleeve shirt, Friday jeans and a hooded sweatshirt which wasn't warm enough by evening. Got home Friday at 9 pm and promptly started the stove back up. 35 last night and hanging at 42 today with a steady wind.....just loaded the old girl up with some dead cherry. Probably burn for a couple more days but the new Buck 91 is on the truck in the garage.

    Glad I started this thread! It's amazing to see the different spectrums. I am in Florida this week. Came to see the mouse and just got the kids out of the pool. High is almost 90 tomorrow!

    Mason Dixon Line here, near Pickett's charge, an old local boy once was heard to remark, in disgust, "had to make fire in June"!

    Started a fire in the Buck 80 at 6:30pm last night 4-25-13, used 6 or 7 pieces of ash and locust mixed. It was about 44 and had been raining most of the day. At 7am this morning it was 29 with a heavy frost out in our world. The house was 73 and the 80's cat was at 1000 and the blower was set on low. I should get plenty of heat until about 9 or 10 am then old man sunshine will be coming over the hill and taking care of the warming. I think this is the last fire of the year, but I've said that twice before last night.:oops:

    Had a fire all through the night, got down to 35F. Maybe need one tonight as down to 38F. Getting close to the end though. Been a long burning season for Ky. Way more fires in November and April than normal.

    Down to one quick fire a day now. Start it about 9:00 at night just to keep the kids from complaining. Doesn't work though. :rolleyes:
