Also nothing at the moment; have had some morning fires, some night fires, and some nothings as our temps still hit into the 60-70 range. We even broke a record last week for the highs hitting mid 70s. Here’s my forecast for the next week. We’ll see what happens.
Here in MA we had a cold snap in late oct with day temps 30-40 degrees and overnights around 25-35. We got 6 inches of snow on Oct 30th! I was burning poplar rounds and uglies during the day and big splits at night. Its not the best type of wood but it was free, dry, and let's me save my hardwood for the winter!
The next 10 days are all going to be 65 during the day and 45 at night so I'm gonna shut down the stove and let the heat pump do its thing. I'll give the stove a good cleaning before the real cold gets here and we're burning 24/7.
Same here as many of the rest of y'all. I haven't had a fire for around 4 days and probably won't until tuesday when temps drop again. It was 76 here today and a low of only 50 for tonight with same pattern til tuesday. I did finally get my rear in gear this weekend and brought wood to the front porch so im ready at least.
I'm burning the pallet that my newly-installed insert came on. Kind of a gross analogy, but it kind of seems like a postpartum animal eating it's afterbirth! Pallet burns great though...got a hot fire going in a jiffy.
After the pallet wood burns down, I'll be reloading with tulip tree wood.
The 60-70 weather is gone, winter is here. Had first snow fall over weekend not a lot in the valleys a couple inches. Temps commensurate with winter. Highs in the 20-30 range lows in the teens or less. Currently 27 out and feels like 17, tonight a low 11 potentially near 0 with the chills etc. got off work this morning and threw the trusty ol pine in. Might start breaking into the juniper/mahogany tonight.
