    I thought we had our last fire two weeks ago. This is up in the North Carolina mountains.
    But, this morning had a low of 45, I got up at 8 am and the girlfriend had the Oslo cranked up.
    That just made my day, we love our Oslo.

    It's only May guys, still plenty of need for heat. We burned last night and will likely burn most nights of May and into June before our 3 month break.

    Yeah, I thought I was done burning for the season too. I removed the bed of ashes in the stove and started to get ready for Spring cleaning. But today .... back to burning. If it isn't nice outside, at least it is nice inside.

    Lots of folks still burning. Since this crap weather rolled in two nights ago the stove hasn't gone out. When the sun is out and temps are 55/45 we can burn one tiny fire every evening, if any.

    Have not had a fire since the second week of April. The heat from the last fire activated “swarmer termites” to emerge through a hairline crack in the concrete and congregate under my stove. Apparently they set up a colony under my slab and seem to be drawn to heat. We had the house treated yesterday, but will probably wait until fall before firing off again. Enjoy your fires guys.

    Planning on a small fire tonight so its not too chilly in the house in the morning. There are 15 or 20 sticks of firewood left in the wood box, I would rather burn it that carry it back out to the pile.

    Once firewood comes into my house, it does not leave. Not doing that work twice ;)

    Absolutly not. I left half a cord in my basement last summer on pallets. It was good and dry come fall but found lots of tiny ants in between the splits. So any leftovers have to go up the chimney.
