    ...now that temps have been in the 40 - 45F degree range during the day. I am able to get away with a morning load, one reload (maybe) and then one night time burn in my well insulated 2200 sq. ft. colonial. Looking forward to spring at this stage of the game! Still got about a 4" of snow pack to melt away and cabin fever is starting to get the better of me.

    We're due for a warm up in a few days too. Wood use should will drop, but running the stove gets tougher.
    It's always somethin'.

    Ya, this stinks. Between the cold, nuisance snow and the adopted stray puppy, I haven't got anything stacked in a few weeks. Need to get on it before the Spring breezes start to blow. :oops:

    Yep, in the same boat. Did get all that ash split but the white oak is still in rounds. Monday looks good, well a little better, for splitting and stacking.

    Looks like late in next week we'll warm up. Until then no thawing expected. Sure would welcome some 40-45 degree days.

    I started building my shed at the end of March 2010.
    We're almost there.
