    The report for Saratoga county, NY.
    Memorial Day weekend is the designated date for setting tomato plants out. Its a family tradition of being the last frost date for our region. But thats not to say we havent covered plants after that date.
    The stove had some time off but Sunday night was back in the saddle. Its still going with a low fire with cherry and birch and red maple.
    I went thru 5 cords of wood this winter. 2 cords were aspen. I keep the house set at 59-60° all winter. Its 49° outside.

    Had evening fires Monday and Tuesday nights, lows were in the 30s. Tomorrow will be in the 80s. Strange spring so far...

    Lit one about two hours ago. It's in the low 50s and drizzling. The house was at 62° and I just couldn't take it anymore!

    Thermostat's now down at 53-55F so it won't come on ( it caught me by surprise the other week).

    Even on a 46F night the house keeps enough heat after a 68F day ... but I would def. have burned two nights ago, if she who must be kept cool had not nixed the idea.

    I almost made a fire yesterday but ended up falling asleep on the couch. I had started to rake the yard (snow all melted and most of it is dry..ish) but then it started to snow. I gave up!

    Must be all the hot air coming out of Portlandia ;)


    Twenty-freaking eight ... where are you in the arctic circle ... that's just global freezing right there, it's nearly Memorial Day fer crying out loud.

    54 later on tonight here is plenty manageable without a fire --- 71 right now.

    Spotted the first big "summer-like" cumulus clouds in months.

    Not tonight but probably have to start one up tomorrow evening. When the rain moves in for a few days the house just doesn't want to warm up naturally.

    Stove is 3/4 full of Larch right now but the stove is cold until about 8:30 at night. We had a warm spell for about a week where I didnt start a fire but now the frost is back. Highs of 17c this week with rain but at least the snow is gone! mowed the lawn for the first time this year. Third night in a row Ive had a fire. I think the end is near though.....

    Same with us here in Québec. Calling for low 30`s tonight. But it was in the 70s during the day. It`s 8:30pm and the house is at 72F. I`m just itchin`to start a fire, but the heat will be just unbearable in the house.

    Had a few beers and fired up the stove at midnight (30 minutes ago). 58 in the house and the weather man is calling for a low in the mid 40's. Burning alder that I cut down last July and pulled a few of the smaller Fir pieces that were cut down in December. Kind of fun burning the pitchy Fir.
