    'Who would RATHER be burning?' perhaps. I can almost hear the meter spinning. The a/c won't be off for quite a while.

    Not I. I'd rather be outside, but we don't get miserably hot here. Most folks don't even have AC.

    I was burning the past four days...not the stove, but me! Power loss from the storm meant no a/c and temps over 90 indoors! We have a little generator, which allows the friges and freezer to run as well as the well pump, but not the a/c. In the cooler temps, it is no problem since we have heat with the inserts...but I can not figure out how to use them to make cool air.


    Fortuantely, power came on today...so life is much, much better. As a bonus, large maple came down across the neighbor's driveway. He did not have a saw, so I cut it up enough to get his car through...he wanted to hire a company to chip the branches and also take down a couple hangers...so I told him if he wanted to save a bit, the tree guys could chuck the wood on my side of the property line. Score - about a cord of free and delivered wood!

    I got soaked in the woods today. Came home wet and cold, so I started a fire just to dry things out.

    This system is supposed to be the last one for a while. Supposedly we will finally dry out in the PNW.

    While there were some 1,000+ record highs across the US this week, we in the PNW are still seeing record lows for highs. We also just had the second wettest June on record for rain in PDX. I got over a foot of rain here in June, and my soil is still saturated. I was burning again yesterday...

    You must be up north. We were sunny most of the day and in the mid 60's. It's cool tonight, already 51F.
