    48, damp and raw so fired up the stove. Middle of June. Go figure.

    My wife isn't feeling well and it's chilly out with the rain tonight, so a mid June fire it is. She had a feeling we were going to break our streak again. I was hoping to put some plants on the stove for summer soon...

    SpaceBus … had coffee with one of the guys from my wife's former church this morning. He and I were the only ones from the Friday morning group, usually 6 - 7 of us, to show up. He was fishing north of you in Maine last week with a group of buddies. I think he said it was Grand Lake Stream.

    He said the black flies weren't bad, but the mosquitoes were really, really bad. O.k., only if you were on the water well away from shore. Their cabin wasn't sealed up well, and there were a lot of mosquitoes in the cabin. They were stuffing plastic bags in gaps in the logs. :) He said he actually had to spray his pillow with bug spray to sleep, a first for him. :eek:

    Thankfully it's not like that here! The other day I got a magnetic rake at the hardware store and found full mesh shirts with hooods. What a life changer!

    My wife got the wood stove going last night. Unbelievable cool weather for the middle of June.

    I’m finally done burning for the season. My last fire was on Saturday the 14th. It’s a bit cool in the house in the mornings yet at 65-66 but I can dress warmer in the mornings and change later in the day. This year was the latest I’ve ever burned and so far I’ve only run the AC for a hour and the humidity has been low, a comfortable summer so far!

    We may have a fire tonight as the house has been opened up for the last four days while we performed some much needed repairs. Rain came right as we buttoned everything up with the typar house wrap.

    Had fired stove 2 days ago - it was about 61 inside- and it reduces humidity level as well which was close to 57%. Sat - Mon - 50% chance of rain external temps may hit 70 for a high- so there is a good possibility that the stove will be fired up again- just can't get myself to turn on the propane furnace. I almost relented a couple days back but came to my senses before flipping the propane switch.

    Time to move, blades! Yesterday here was sailing, then mowing, then swimming and eating by the pool. High of 78, low of 68.

    Doing my best to stay out of cities and suburbs of same. Unfortunately it is almost impossible for me to avoid the idiot bureaucrats to wit 16 ft height limit on a barn ( taxed on sq footage foot print).

    With the rain we've gotten here and temps staying in the low 60's we've had a few small fires. The whole first floor has no insulation right now, so that's really why it's cold inside.
