A few big rounds of ash and some locust here and there. I did load both stoves up this morning with some large splits of locust since we would be gone all day working. 14 hours later and the basement is still 71.

Reloaded with sassafras and I got some oak from another stack because it'll be 28 tonight - coldest yet this season.

After a overnight load of hickory and with a low of 39 right now we will make it to 60 today so right now I'm letting the stove go cold. The house is 74. It's only supposed to get down to 45 tonight then high forties the next two nights with highs around 70 Wednesday and Thursday. We will be flirting with record highs here. Looks like the stove will rest until Friday.

28 now. Still chewing through the oak and sassafras from yesterday. I noticed again how much more energy there is in a box full of oak vs pine or sassafras; it's not yet halfway done...
