Safe travels! Bring as much wood as you can close to the house, you never know what awaits you when you come back….Leaving for South Carolina in a few days, for a month. Seems odd having to button things up "for when the snow flys", when its 78deg and raining. The wood cart is full. All it would take is a few cloudy days in the 50s to light one up, but still, blocks of time can throw me off.
HAHA - yes, she is a smart lady - she was the straight "A" student when we were in school! we caught back up about 12 years ago, both of us going to the local community college - I did beat her GPA this time!!Your better half is a smart lady for who wants to be cold-----------not meeeee....Here in my state they were saying on the radio that they expect "maybe" it to go right above freezing on Wed but I think it will go to freezing (at night this is) so I am begin to winterize my hoses and stuff..Daytime temperatures are still pretty good 70 or so and I just wonder about your tomato's since I have one in Oregon did you get a lot of tomato"s this year...Sounds good and you will just love the heat and especially the ambiance of it all--get a glass of juice or hot cocoa or something and really enjoy it..My new stove will be lite on Oct 28th and my stove installer is suppose to bring over a wood gage to test the moisture and a stove pipe temperature gauge as well and I got some fire extinguishers just in case---lol lol...First time burner here so Happy Heating Season back to you too and you have a sensible better half who does not want to be cold and is getting you in the mood for burning your stove ahead of time...good for her...clancey
we had such a bad wildfire season we can't burn brush piles yet. my place has extremely limited room to have a burn pile - so I am anxiously awaiting the big opening day. place is covered in fir and pine - with a few other types - but the ladder fuel is out of control, as even though I have owned this place quite a while - work had me away for weeks at a time, with barely 3 days back a month - so maintenance has been lacking for quite awhile. I have about 1/2 an acre of limbs down, ready to drag out and burn. but in my mind less of a hazard spread out instead of a pile. we didn't see 40 degrees today until afternoon. made it all the way to 56 though. I did let the stove go out this morning after she left for work!No fire until weekend. Today was beautiful 74 had a nice fire pit fire. Burning bunch more brush
