    OIl burner kicked in last night, as someone who likes to be cold left all the windows open!

    I closed the windows, turned down the thermostat and piled the blankies back on.

    No insert here (still a distant plan) and a fireplace fire at 3 am is not a great idea ...
    It's definitely been cold enough down here at night to think about it, but not quite cold enough to actually do it. Spoke with another neighbor who was pondering the same thing.

    On the other hand, the charcoal barbecue has been very busy this weekend.

    We've been having "poverty fires" lately...aka going around with a wheelbarrow and collecting branches and burning those. Low of 24* tonight, so i'm heading out in a few minutes for another load.

    I thought for sure yesterday would be Day 1 of No Burns . . . but my wife started hinting about it being cool and finally came right out and asked if I wanted to light a fire or turn up the thermostat. I lit a fire.

    Woodstove fires are hit and miss now. 60° in the house right now. Was in 70's outside over the weekend. Memorial Day weekend is our last frost date for planting. Saratoga NY.

    Winter won't die where I live. We are expecting 10+ inches of snow tonight. Glad I have plenty of wood on hand.

    Done. Glass cleaned, stove vacuumed. Just scrounged two loads of locust osage and oak.
    Just have to split and stack and wait 3 years.

    Been cool enough a few nights, and lows will be in the mid-40s ... but not quite cold enough inside — it seems to hold at 65 — where I can justify a fire to the cold-loving wife and furry animal.

    He's on his last legs, with not long to go before he tells us its time, unfortunately, so I am definitely not going to make him uncomfortable, either. He seems to like it cool, and so would I, if I had that much fur.

    There is a load waiting for a lighter in the stove for 5 days now. I may end up unloading it.

    I think last night was our last fire of the "winter". It was 24* but going up to 70-80 for the 10 day forecast

    I have about 12-14 splits of Cherry inside that will be going back out, if we need a fire it will be some pine that will do the job.

    The night temps are dropping to the low 40's, the day temps will range from 70-75 this week.

    OK, I'm gonna bring up a wheelbarrow load tonight before the rain/snow starts. Calling for up to an inch on Thursday, and more wintery-mix and cooler (35) on Friday. That means that unless something changes, I'll have a fire going on the 3RD OF MAY! Crazy.

    I finally shut the 30 down for the season and cleaned it all up. Only fires I have going are outside and a candle in the stove to keep moving air up.

    Stove is off most of the time now. Wife has a complaint of it being cool in the mornings. 69-72! I sleep with the bedroom window open. I have had it open for a couple weeks now. Only close it if it rains because I don't like dampness.

    That is just too much! I have had my window open for a month. I like it warm, but not hot or humid. The weather is so odd sometimes. Our leaves are out, but some cold temps are anticipated these next couple of days. Anything tender I have outside is growing under glass or plastic.

    Might be burning ourselves again. Going down into the 30s over the next three nights. Latest ever I would have ever thought we'd need heat. Might be an 8 or 9 month burning season if it gets cool right at the end of the summer.
