A/C still sucking down the KW’s here. Not looking to need heat for another 2 months at least!It has been a cool damp day so we're having a shoulder season wood fire, 78 in the basement where the stove is and 72 up here.
After tomorrow the temps will be warmer for the week, we usually start feeding the Lopi Liberty on September 15 and the latest has been the 25 of September. Since oil and propane prices are up, we won't use any of those until the coldest weather hits.
I think that I'll cover another two face cord of shoulder season wood, that will give us just under eight face cord for this fall and next spring if needed.
I hope you get some rain.Still no sign of a cooldown here, we burnt a couple fires this time last year, AC is still going full blast this year.
We had the hottest August I've ever seen, and no appreciable rain in the last month. Now we've had 3 large forest fires start in the last 3 days and the smoke is rolling in.
I'm ready for a fire, but forest fires aren't quite what I wanted.
The rain has been real hit n miss here. We would get a sprinkle and Marietta/Reno would about get washed away. Been that way all summer. I had a mini excavator rented last weekend digging out for a driveway improvement project and dug stumps out with the remaining hours. At one point I was 6-7’ deep and still in dry dirt. We could really stand a light drizzle for about 3 days here.Just a little north of you rusty18. I can't complain about the rain this summer, my yard looks great and the gravel road in front of the house never got very dusty. I can complain about the temperatures. My electric bills have been the worst in 6 years in this house.
The rainy weekend has made me want to light the stove.
