    46 degrees here yesterday, cool enough I wish I was ready to do my break in fires. My chimney install is moving slowly along. I can only work on it when the wife is at work. I have the first 12 feet isntalled and am close to finalizing the black pipe to class A connection. Next is the hole in the closet ceiling, framing, installing the attic flashing then up on the roof to open up the top of the chase for the final push. I am excited!

    Could have technically burned a small fire last night and for the next couple days but I refuse. I'm going to have more than just a two month break from burning. :) I have no trouble letting the furnace or electric space heater/s picking up temp at this point in the year.

    I would turn the furnace on but it doesn't work. I lit one this morning. By the time my girls got up and out of the shower, they were quite happy to stand in front of the stove again.

    June 1. We have a fire in the stove..... Fortunately it is raining and that is why the stove is going, to keep the dampness out but it is a bit nippy at night. This rain is very welcome as it is really bone dry here. Funny part is that we drove to Saginaw a couple days ago. Farmers working in fields you can barely see because of so much dust. Near Saginaw, water is standing in the fields. That is the way it goes around here. We watch the radar and rain is all around us. Coming from the west it usually breaks up at the county line, which is about 5 miles from us. Or else it goes north, south or some big stuff pops up to the east. So we really welcome this rain.

    I thought about starting it up Saturday but then realized, its June! It just wouldn't seem right.
    So...we froze.

    Like zap said +1.
    As long as outdoor temps are in the low 60's during the day and 40's at night the Spectrum will be put to use fulfilling its purpose in life. ==c On these days a fire will be kindled during late afternoon.

    Looks like we are in for a spell of Juneuary again this year. We may be burning tonight. You could feel this system blowing in yesterday afternoon. They're saying it will be around all week. At noon it's only 51F so far. And I just removed all the row cover hoops from the garden and staked the tomatoes. :mad:

    Got the Esse cook stove going, roasting two full pans of veggies in olive oil , garlic, thyme and salt and pepper. House is toasty , plus smells great! Of course the window is open a little by the stove to let in some fresh country spring air as well.

    We have a small fire burning in our basement stove tonight. I thought we were done. I removed two birds from the stove and stuffed some insulation in the passthrough a week or two ago. It was 67 in our living room this morning and 68 after school. I'm thankful to have enough dry wood not to worry about burning some on the last day of school. We actually had the AC on a week ago.

    Got home this afternoon, then went over to the neighbor's house, and froze my rear off when I walked back home at 6pm. It was already under 50 degrees. Fire going full blast.
