    I have the stove "pre-loaded" for tomorrow morning (4:45) so the wife and tator-tots are warm when they get up. Going down to mid 30's tonight with highs tomorrow only in mid 50's. Tomorrow night calling for low 30's. Hope ya'll stay warm ;)

    I built a fire this afternoon, around 3:30. After all, it IS mother's day, and Mum was chilly (hey, it was 64 degrees in the house, I was fine with it), so it's back online. Have a mixed load of small beech and red maple in her as I type this, house is a balmy 78 friggin degrees.....

    May 12/13th make fire one last time... I think... low 30's high 20's tonight. 85 on wednesday... Fire on monday and a/c on wednesday... Wonder what the rest of the year is going to bring.

    Correction, strike that first statement. I just looked at the extended forcast and looks like we might be getting low's in the low 40's or high 30's the week after next. Just might be making fire in June. :confused:

    Still burning but just some basswood. It burns darn fast but does the job for a few hours and that's all I need.

    44 tonight, 41 tomorrow down here on Long Islands tropical paradise in Southern NY.
    caught a whiff of firewood walking the dog the other night, but the house is holding good heat from the day (68F) so I doubt I'll be burning, but you never know.

    Last season, I burned from mid September to the last week of June. This year, I didn't burn until mid October and only until 3rd week of April. I've burned about 1/2 cord less this season.

    Had a fire on Friday night, still feeling the warmth from that, but, will have to light up again tonight, a small one though.
    4C over night, and up to high teens during the day.

    When I think of Australia, I don't think about cold. Crocodiles, and kangaroos, but not cold. I haven't had a fire in about a month. Getting up into the 90's here and turned on the air conditioner yesterday.

    Can't believe I'm saying this on May 13th in Philly, but I just fired 'er up. Going down into the 30s tonight (I know that doesn't impress some of the tundra guys on here) and I let the oil tank run dry. I'm using it as an opportunity to get rid of as many uglies as I can.

    I thought I was done burning, just yesterday I took the plastic off the windows and swapped the storm windows for screens.:rolleyes:

    I really think, considering the date, that I must surely be Tony Done-gee. Let the stove and stack maintenance and upgrades begin! ==c
    And let the on-going task of processing wood continue (one day soon, I hope to be done going into the woods when spring arrives, and not going back in until later in the summer when the blasted tick population subsides.) :mad:
