I actually had to put mine out, the wind was really whipping embers around even with the screen on. Didn’t want to wind up on the news for a mini forest fire.64 max here, clear sky, and very breezy. 56 now, going to 50 minimum tonight. No heat needed.
Collected a lot of branches from the lawn for the fire pit. Too windy for a fire now though.
I vote for both. More fire is better... 😜I'm going back and forth between having a campfire outside or firing up the Stratford II inside. It was in the 30's last night and cold by the campfire. Tonight is only going down in the 40's, but the cabin feels a little chilly...
Wow - yea just saw how bad it was on the news. Glad you didn't lose power and are safe. Nice to have the wood stove just in case. I know many that have them will need to use them.Hurricane Fiona nailed Nova Scotia today. Lots of power outages, rain and high winds. We thankfully didn't lose power but a couple within 30 minutes of us did. I fired up a small fire for comfort when they dropped over for a hot lunch. It burned well.
Mostly small splits of birch and one maple. I tossed in a split of willow on start up.
Was a good day to have a woodstove in NS today.
