    We have been doing morning and night fires here in Michigan. The temps are in the 30 to 40 range at night yet for us.

    We're in central PA and we burn anytime there are two consecutive nights in the 40's or lower. We've had a fire going since Sunday morning, usually burn regularly through May

    Still burning in the NY Metro area. Its been going down to low 40s and a few nights high 30s. We have been running the wood stove and the pellet stoves at different intervals. If it gets to 66 indoors, the stove is coming on, thats my rule.

    Still buning some in the evening. Mass/NH border area. Lit the stove last night and the night before. If the inside temp gets down to low 60's I wil light a fire.

    I guess my house just holds heat well? Was 30* when I got home last night, 73* in the house. It's about 9AM now, 70* in the house, 55* outside. By this evening it'll probably be 75ish in here.

    If I made a fire with even just 2-3 sticks it would be way too hot! Just the heat from the sunlight all day is enough to keep the house plenty warm. If you compare, the stove heats the house just fine on "low" when it's -25* outside... in the 30s is quite warm in comparison!

    Still burning evenings here in NS Canada; Stove is in the basement, and the temp stays around 15c so just a small fire to take the chill off while I watch some TV. beats turning up the electric heat.

    Had a fire every night for a over a week to take the chill off, but don't think I am going to need one tonight. Sitting on the patio with my buddy Oggie, enjoying the warm temps and the water garden.;)

    We never figure the heating season is over until sometime in May. Some years it is early June. If the house is cool or cold, the fire gets lit.

    I just may try the door firescreen tonight for the heck of it. Probably use it for 10 minutes, and then back under the stove where it has been all winter.

    I don't turn the gas furnace on in the dead of winter, so I can't bring myself to turn it on when there is just a chill. Besides, I love burning the stoves, so lighting a fire to take the chill off is easy for me. :cool:

    Still burning in the 'burbs of NYC. It was 36 this morning. One fire in the late afternoon early evening seems to do it. I am previewing next year's Red Oak with some chunks and uglies c/s/s summer '10. It's gonna keep us nice and cozy next year!

    Still cold enough here in the wv mountains to have a fire at night and in some cases all day. Was 68 in here this morning so I broke down and turned the heat pump on. Just makes my hair stand on end to hear it running. Just as well throw your money out the window for all the good it does! Supposed to drop into the 30s tonight so I will probably fire up the liberty later.

    Guess I am not the only one looking for nights with lows in the lower 40's to burn the new insert. I am loving the fact that I can wake up in the morning to a stove still blowing out hot air!

    Sounds like some of you guys have a different idea of cold then I do! It's been in the mid 50s here during the day and that is for sure T Shirt weather. Was pushing 70* in the house this morning, I had to open a window!

    You Alaskan's probably do have a different idea of cold, but I think you also have a different (better) idea of how to build well insulated houses too.
