Our temps are heading down to around 45 so the wife wanted a fire, we have some pine going in the Lopi Liberty tonight.
That sounds great. Any temps in the 40's, we're burning a fire at night and in the morning.80 today, baseball practice with my son, 76 now. Watched the international space station fly by around 7.30 while the kids were in the pool and I was sitting at the outside fireplace where some pine was going and smelling nicely.

When we had our house built in 2003, we needed the a/c for a week but we're running it almost a month lately.Yes, and I'm jealous .
I have to figure out when to switch from the minisplit heat pump to the stove and not burning more than 2-2.5 cords per season (space constraint per the significant other...). But I ran the ac a bit today...

We haven't run the a/c and the dehumidifier in a few weeks so the good old electric bill should be a lot less.
It warmed up quick today, in the direct sun it's 82. I'm looking forward when the cooler weather moves in and stays but by the end of February, I'll be looking for the warmer weather.Very jealous here! Still hanging around in the 70’s and 80’s during the day. Looking like next week is a cool down for us. Won’t be long!
That's a nice lineup for the shoulder season, we have just under six face cord of White Pine for our shoulder season firewood. We'll save about three face cord for the spring.Lower 40's beginning Wed night and through the weekend. Excited to fire up for the first time this season! Perfect time of year for those to take the chill off fires and also see that everything is working properly. Will be getting into a pine/cherry/birch mixed cord to start shoulder season with maple, oak and elm shorts and uglies on standby if some slightly cooler nights pop up.

We have two face of American Hophornbeam (Ironwood) for the real cold weather along with twelve face cord of Ash and eight face cord of Yellow Birch and Soft & Hard Maple if needed. We usually burn twelve face cord per year.
We'll also burn 50 bags of pellets per year, since our wood stove is in the basement, we burn the pellet stove at night for the constant heat when it gets real cold.
