Truck said -20F at one point this morning. Furnace ran at 6:30am since I didn't want to wake up early to reload. Using my absolute top stuff, crossing my fingers this is the coldest snap this heating season.
Finally warming back up a little here. Its going to be in the mid forties today, fifth ies tomorro, and sixties monday with rain before we fall back to seasonal thirties. I have a mixed oak load going now at 33 outside.
Pine, pine, pine.
It's always bloody pine.
It's been pine my whole life and it will pine after I'm dead.
It's only -12C this morning but we'll be burning 24/7 another 6 weeks.
And it's pine.
Here is a pic. It's from right now.
Yah. We rise fast in the day too. It can be a good thing.
After I posted we kept dropping into -15+ range. Sun is blazing now and it's back up to -13. Time to chuck more PINE in to the firebox so I can go outside for the day.
Maybe I'll look for some dead spruce or poplar down by the river.
Variety is the spice of life - but I don't want to risk addiction or whatever...
We have 7.2 tonight with AccuWeather calling for a low of 5, the Liberty has four splits of sugar maple on the bottom row with another 3 on the top row with 2 rounds of american hophornbeam filling out the middle of the top row.
