High of about 25 today, was busy in the shed all day and was late with the reload, got a load of cherry on high, then a mix of cherry and ash tonight.

Something unrelated to firewood, I shot a big dear yesterday.
If you count it the old hanging ring way, it’s a 27 point, 1” or longer tines it’s a 24.

Was out late today. Did not have time to refill the wood next to the stove with pine. So I reloaded with red oak and the last split of pine.

31 out now, 71 in the living floor, 77 in the basement at knee height, 82 at ceiling height.

Ash....

Got my buck this morning too. Nothing like the one @sweedish got - a 5pt, but on the heavily hunted public land I go to I see a buck about once every 5 years. Last one I tagged was like 12 or 15 years ago. I usually get at least one doe a season though, so the freezer gets stocked.😁

I'm burning Canawick bricks this year. I started late (I'm a skinflint, plus I couldn't find my Sooteater to clean the flue until Wednesday), so I'm only on my fourth sleeve. So far, so good.

I've burned Biobricks, Envirobricks, RUF, and processed my own cordwood. These bricks seem pretty much like the others. Price in northern NH was $400/pallet, plus a flat $100 delivery fee, so I sprung for five pallets.

We’re supposed to get a bit of snow today. They say 2-3’. Just loaded up the BK with maple and ash. 22 degrees outside and 77 degrees inside.

I’m not sure we’ll get that much snow, and maybe the weather guys just got scared by what happened to Buffalo, and are predicting more just in case.

House cooled down far more than I expected... 61F in living room.

Plenty of coal for relight although I might've gotten ahead of myself by putting a too big of a gnarly piece in that's not catching. I'll probably have to spend rest of morning putting in small splits in any spaces that opens up.

Maple uglies going to be loaded now, as last night's oak is done for.
36 max today, and stormy (no rain but a lot of wind).

26 for a low tonight so I'm going to run it a bit harder and hope this'll get me to around 10 pm for another load of oak.

First fire of the year. Tulip poplar.
I Love how this stuf burns. Say what you want about it as firewood down here it’s all I need 75%!of the time. It Just lights fast and on a full load close the air all the way and just run on complete secondary combustion.

A lot of what I burn is quaking aspen and boxelder, it all burns when dry
