    Tuesday night's load is about burned up. I'll stuff it again in the next hour or two.

    I keep hoping it is cool enough to do my break in fires when I FINALLY get the chimney install done. Very tedious cutting through 3 ceilings and two floors, taking care of framing while working through a 1 ft. square opening. A couple more full days and a few more $ saved and I'll have it in. Pics of the project will be shared. We had a covering of snow this morning. Ahhh, the U.P.

    Of course we are still burning. Some of us on this site use only wood for heat and if you only heat with wood then you will be burning until outdoor temps heat up enough that the house inside warms up to 70 and stays there. That's not until mid-june in western WA. 40s at night and 50s in the daytime don't make 70 indoors.

    Short fires for sure, one a day, but almost everyday.

    I've started to respond again a couple times, but every time I do, I see Dennis has taken the words right out of my keyboard and put 'em on here.
    Dennis can be my spokesperson on this one. He needs the post count anyway.;lol

    I'm in Chicagoland. Still burning at night. It gets chilly, but not quite enough last night. Night before was good.

    I light my gas Woodstock all the time to take the chill of the room. That's a little easier than the woodstove.

    Cool and rainy last night, today, and forecast for tonight. The house dropped to 65 degrees so the boss lit the stove again...

    Burning round the clock for about a week now. Small fires during the day and kick it up at night.

    Had my little gas Franklin burning the last two nights. Push button flame does have advantages, especially when it's just cold enough but you don't want to drive yourself out of the room with a real fire.

    70s last week, bedroom window left open all night, every night. This a.m., awoke to snow falling and 31 F. Forecast for 23 F. tonight. So, stoves are going and I'm gonna bake bread in the cookstove today. A few miles away, down in Denver, the trees are leafed out and people are fretting about limbs breaking off if the snow gets to down there [so far the snow line is about 7000 ft., so they are getting rain.]

    Still burning . . . I wouldn't mind stopping soon though . . . then I could start loading my woodshed instead of unloading it.

    I thought I was done but the last couple days were in the 50's with rain so a nice evening fire felt nice.

    Lit up a small fire last night. Prolly can find enough coals to get a few splits going this evening. Supposed to be 73 tomorrow, but 60s/40s Wednesday and Thursday, maybe wet, too. Then 70s again for a few days. Ain't over yet, though I'm ready to be done.

    Done. Burned up the last of the dry wood last week. Pretty good timing for our first year.

    Finally done. Cleaned the stove completely out for the second time this spring and refuse to start anymore fires no matter how cold it would get. Have had the A/C on here for the last 2 weeks but its turned up to 80 so hasn't been on to much so hopefully no more fires:mad: Going to be hard to look at an empty stove until next september
