    Woke up this morning and it was 27 degrees out...brrrrr!

    Good thing I had got the stove all ready the other day and brought some shoulder season wood in. I've got some sugar maple that is really old, with some of it starting to dry rot, and some left over oak that had some punk on the outside but solid in the middle when I cut it. Burning great and throwing off some good secondaries.

    Oak very typically gets an inch or so of punk on the outside but it doesn't hurt at all. I'd save that oak until mid-winter.
